I use two-finger swipes to both scroll up/down and go forward/back in history when using Google Chrome on OS X Mavericks. I find that frequently, when I try to scroll up/down, it actually gets interpreted as a left/right swipe; this is because I sometimes swipe somewhat diagonally. I want to basically shift the balance so that swipes at a wider range of angles are interpreted as scrolling, as opposed to history motion. How can I do this?

I just upgraded from Snow Leopard; it really feels like the sensitivity to direction has increased a lot. Would love to see a solution to this. –  Mike Feb 6 at 16:30
