I promised MeFi some information about singing mice a long time ago...

I've just graduated with my PhD! In my department, PhD defenses are traditionally open to the public: anyone who wants to can attend. Because of COVID, mine was held via Zoom this year, and I was able to record it and transcribe/caption it so that anyone who would like can watch. [more inside]

SensibleSideButtons: reliable, system-wide side mouse button navigation in macOS

The side buttons on generic mice work really well for navigation in Windows... but not so much in macOS. By default they basically do nothing, and most software that claims to fix this problem (USB Overdrive, etc.) only binds the buttons to keyboard shortcuts with mixed results. While testing the Logitech MX Master, I noticed that unlike every other mouse I'd come across, its side buttons were acting in a suspiciously Windows-like manner on my Mac. (No blinking menu bars. No occasional destructive behavior. No mis-targeted navigation commands.) I decided to investigate this phenomenon in hopes of porting the behavior to all my other mice, and to make a long story short: it works! Really well! (Under GPL!)
