Description of bug/feature request/question:
When bettertouchtool is loaded, pinch/zoom does not work in Chrome, or works intermittently.
Affected input device (e.g. MacBook Trackpad, Magic Mouse/Trackpad, Touch Bar, etc.):
Type of Mac: macbook pro 15"
Additional information (e.g. StackTraces, related issues, screenshots, workarounds, etc.):
As soon as I quit bettertouchtool, pinch/zoom starts working in Chrome immediately.

I do confirm planetscripton. With BTT loaded (2.318 - 702) Chrome (63.0.3239.84) doesn't recognize pinch/zoom, no matter how fast or slow I pinch. As soon as I quit BTT pinch/zoom works in Chrome, slow and fast.
All on a MacBook Air running 10.13.1 with a Magic Trackpad. Using the built-in Trackpad, pinch/zoom kinda works with the fast approach, but not reliably.
Going to chrome://flags and changing Touch Events API from Automatic to Enabled doesn't help.
UPDATE: The fast approach IS WORKING, if I put the fingers on the trackpad and immediately (and fast) produce the pinch gesture. If the fingers already are resting on the trackpad though I can't create the pinch/zoom effect, no matter how fast I pinch.
I do confirm. I have the same issue. When BTT is activated pinch to zoom works only occasionally and is very unreliable. As soon as i deactivate it for chrome zooming starts working again.
The fast approach does not help either. It sometimes works after trying it multiple times but rarely on the first try. I also find that when BTT is disabled i can pinch slowly and still get chrome to zoom (it's not as responsive as safari but it works nonetheless).
