    Do you still use the standard 1 button mouse or have you gone back to using the 2 button+scroll wheel mouse?

    i use a two button with a scroll when at my desk, but when i take my laptop somewhere, i just use teh trackpad


    i like single button and dual button, but if i have to pick, i would go with 2button






    i heard a rumor that apple's next gen desktops will have 2 buttons AND a scroll :hyper:

    maybe they will update 10.4 to use a right click as a primary function in the future!
    (i know you can still right click (ctrl+click), thats why i said primary):rolleyes:

    Use the one button that came with my machine. It's really all I ever need. I find that quick keys are faster for cut and pasting etc. and good practice for being effiecient with other programs like ps, etc.

    2button+scroll.

    I actually have some issues with mine. When using Firefox clicking the middle mouse button in general won't open a new tab. But yet it works in Safari.

    I'm used to opening & closing tabs soley through the scroll click.

    I use the Apple mice for both of my computer. I have the wired one for my iMacG5 and a BT one for my Powerbook.

    Personally i am a fan of the one button for a few reasons. First it encourage me to learn the program instead of right clicking everything, and i like it caus ei feel cool when i hit "ctrl" and click the mouse. that brings up the right click function.

    I never took the Apple mouse out of its packaging. Actually, same for the iPod headphones.
