Fuck you, scrolling long web pages is far comfier when you can just click the wheel and then slide up and down the page by moving the mouse up and down. Scrolling noises get old pretty quickly.

that does sound cool but mine does not do that. I'm on Debian XFCE, logitech shit mouse. the scroll wheel does what it should, but when I click it down and move the mouse, the cursor is all that moves.

Clicking on a link in a brower with a scroll wheel always opens it in a new tab, so yes. A lot.

yes
new tab

Yes, I almost always open things in a new tab. An ultra stiff middle mouse button is a bit of a deal breaker for me on a mouse, I wish manufacturers would stop that.

I agree that one of us is an idiot. I guess the "joke" is that I'm supposed to write the code. Oh well, bye, /g/, I've had my daily dose of nerd humor.

I don't click the middle mouse button for scrolling but I do open new tabs and close tabs with it. That's basically it, I think.

I broke mine years ago so I bound it to a thumb button and have used it ever since in the thumb button even when I replaced my mouse.

I use it for opening/closing new tabs and autoscrolling.

The noise the scroll wheel makes when you use it. Maybe you have some brand new sorta silent glide whatever wheel, but my old MX518 makes one hell of a racket when I scroll.

I used the scroll wheel when it worked. After 1.5 years it works erratically so I don't use it. Sucks to much to scroll 2 steps down and the page to go 1 step up.
