Prevent Google Chromes on OS X from navigating when scrolling

I have been having this very irritating issue when using the Apple Magic Mouse and Google Chrome.  No matter what I tried when I would use the vertical finer scrolling gesture to scroll up and down the page Chrome would go back and forward in the page history when scrolling to the top or bottom of the page.  This was vary frustrating and is apparently a but in the Chrome touch implementation as it happened in no other browser.  After much headaches, I could just turn off two finger navigation but I use it in other browsers where it works correctly, I finally found a solution.

The Solution:

Open up Terminal and Enter the following.
defaults write AppleEnableMouseSwipeNavigateWithScrolls -bool false
