It's pretty easy. A flick (quick swipe and release finger) means to scroll through tabs, just like how you scroll through photos in an album. Scrolling side to side you just leave your finger on a fraction of a second longer. It's seamless, and I don't ever remember it being an issue. It was in android from day one, so it's kind of amazing it's not in Safari yet. Which is what makes me think it's a patent issue.
