Middle mouse button on Mac OS X

Written on 09/21/2012 by Patrick Bregman

Over two years ago I wrote a Dutch blogpost about this exact same subject. Back then I suggested MiddleClick.app for this. I was going to write a post about how this app didn't work with OS X versions 10.7 and later, but apparently the app was updated. This is great news when all you want is middle click functionality.

But I wanted more. I also wanted to have the Windows 7 like window snapping. While this is available in commercial products like HyperDock, which is a great product and you should really give it a go, I decided to give BetterTouchTool another go. I once tried this on OS X 10.6 because I heard some good things about it, but I didn't really like it back then. But for some reason I really like it now.

So, if you want a solution for middle click support on your MacBook's touchpad, give MiddleClick or BetterTouchTool a go :)
