comment Select whole words using single finger tap gesture
@Griffo: alright, you were right, it's all a matter of timing on how fast you begin dragging after the fourth tap. If you delay even the slightest (what feels like a millisecond at times), you will drag the word. Could you please update the answer to mention that the dragging immediately after the fourth tap is important?

@calavera: yeah, that's true.

comment Select whole words using single finger tap gesture
@calavera: I'm confused, you got it to work? I was able to get your results (double tap the second time deselects a word) to work. Not double-tap-and-drag to select whole words (i.e. I still can't get my original problem solved).

comment Select whole words using single finger tap gesture
@calavera: I was able to reproduce that result if I disable one finger dragging in the settings. @Griffo: If I use clicks instead of taps, everything on the macworld article works as described. However, it does not work with taps no matter how many times I try or how fast I do it.

That works. Unfortunately, though, I like the navigation gesture with three fingers, so I don't want to rebind it.

I'm looking for a solution that doesn't need a second key/hand.

comment Select whole words using single finger tap gesture
That's weird... after reading what you wrote, I tried it and it worked, however that was the only time I could get it to work. No matter what I try, I can't get the same results.

@Calavera: I installed it and played around with it's settings for other problems I have. I don't see any settings that might help with this problem though.

That causes the word to be dragged rather than highlighting

comment How do I uninstall a program completely on a Mac?
One thing AppCleaner doesn't do is remove options in the System Preferences. For example, if the application you want to uninstall has an icon under "Other" in the System Preferences, it will not be removed by AppCleaner. You would have to right click the icon in System Preferences and chose to remove it.

Most, if not all, of the software I have downloaded has never included an uninstaller in the dmg.

comment Toggle between applications via four finger gesture?
I'm actually trying that application right now, the problem is that you can't bind Cmd+Tab. When you try to, it just switches applications. Although, even if it did allow me to bind it, it wouldn't work very well because if you press cmd+tab and let go repeatedly, it just toggles between two applications rather than cycling through all of your applications.

comment Is data transmitted over 3G secure?
Thanks for the info. I'm more interested in how secure non HTTPS data is over 3G, since by definition HTTPS should be secure no matter the connection.

comment How can I restore a file from the trash back to its original folder?
Alright, I found out the problem, the file was deleted by a 3rd party app, so it doesn't have the Put Back option for some reason. If I delete a file from Finder, it does have the put back option.
