    Buying myself a new mouse for sudo Christmas.

    I am looking to replace a Dell Bluetooth mouse i have because of latency issues and problems with precise tracking small movements when the mouse is at a standstill.

    One of the features i like about the mouse is that it has left and right sideways click on the scroll wheel. The dell utility allows configuration of these buttons, though they never actually worked with any programs that i use e.g. notepad, word, VS so go figure.

    I am looking for a new mouse, probably will get the classic Microsoft Laser mouse, but i would like to see if i can find another mouse with the scroll wheel sideways click. What is that sideways click featured called, and what other mice have that feature?

    Any mice that you would recommend?

    Sorry, I can help you on this one. Dues to a severe case of Musophobia, I simply use the keyboard (or occasionally a trackbad or touchpad)

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and paractice; in practice there is.

    Now that you mention it, I notice that my current mouse, a Logitech Optical Mouse USB, has such a feature. Logitech apparently calls it a "tilt wheel".
