Enable third button options for generic third-party mice
Authored by: tuckerch on Jun 03, '09 09:32:17AM

Or... spend a few bucks and make your mouse infinitely more useful.

USB Overdrive will allow you to not only use the third button on the mouse, it will allow you to customize all the buttons and the click/scroll states on the wheel for individual applications.

For example, scroll up down in a browser window/(click & hold) change font size, volume up down in iTunes/(click & hold) Scroll up down the song list in iTunes.

No messing with Terminal required.

I've been using USB Overdrive since my days on a 5500/225 and OS 9.
