Its multiselection, default is basically alt-tab, the buttons are forward and back in a browser at default too. I also have the MX Revolution and its fucking awesome.

I prefer the classic trackballs they put in laptops. And, of course, the tracknubs.

Anyway... my mouse.

This one is mine.
Didn't know many buttons on the mouse are trendy now.
Mine has less pencil pockets ;).

I had one with 1 more button on each side to back and forward but when I started using this one I just added the gesture add on to Firefox.
I don't do anything relayed to GFX and i don't need to have multiple huge windows open so i don't feel discomforted.

My mouse, which I got to replace my MX518 which I hated. Now that I think of it, I've never liked any input device by Logitech, at all. A single button for switching between sensitivity levels is less confusing and I don't have to install shitty Logitech drivers.

because i hate the mouse concept i tryed diferent device for pointing :
when my mouse logitech 15$ was broken i dont buy another during 1 year :
so tested the aiptek my note tablet with pen and that very lower than i hoped before : just better for draw but i prefere paper and scanner10* need to own all this for minimal art ;

i tested some old mouse pen logiteck totally unusable yet but reminding to me the 1987 devices...

i tested 5others trackball including playskool bigest (interesting but lack of accuracy in build ll try to mod it)
the wheel are 10*worstly inaccurat than an equal mouse and the infrared too ,
i need an bluetooth key for test ne new mouse with scroling buton(3rd) is a trackball ....
joystick is so slow but plane simu are related

resume :
trackball is 10worst than equal mouse excepting for the helico / vtol simulator !
test CoD5 scoring 3 to 30 during 2 week and buy a mouse for scoring 12 to 20 but a lot of fun added

why i hate mouse :
need special grab pos that hurt the hand& the arm with long time,
need support for use

but never found more accurate and quick :
so the idea is to add a joystick hand grip on a mouse and some rails
:the result will look same a standard joystick but without rotation remplaced by translation ...
just a resinstick and a box with guides...need to be made by me again ...

defenitely preference though... i have a good friend who has sworn by trackballs for gaming for many years, started using them around the time diablo 2 came out...

inverted Y on the mouse included, whatever you're used to is always going to be the best option.

I just can't see a trackball being great for gaming. TBS games maby, since they are more comfortable on the wrist, but I would eat my hat if there's a trackballer out there who can FPS as good as I can, and I'm really not even all that good.

show to us your device trackball or your special hand !
i want found a corect trackball and at my sense that need be a 3inch ball for be playable (with a lazer accuracy)
it seems modern(infrared) trackball are sided for left or right hand and i try only ambidetre models that are not ergonomics
