As a major trackpad user on PC, I respectively disagree. The problem
with the one-hand approach is that when pressing down on the button
with the same hand, the other fingers tend to 'wander' and thus create
a more difficult targeting problem. Especially when working with small
targets, this becomes frustrating quickly.

For me, the ambiguity of 'what is a tab-click' vs 'just moving around'
on the trackpad makes #2 above also problematic as well.

To each his/her own. :-)
