Google Chrome on Mac supports two-finger swipe gesture to navigate across pages. Sometimes, this leads to unconditional page reload and potential data loss which is frustrating when you are working on something essential.
There is a quick fix: Open Terminal, run the command below, and restart your browser.
It will disable two-finger back/forward navigation for Google Chrome only.
Change parameter to
TRUE to revert changes if needed.
