    How about 3-finger tap or simultaneous click of left and right buttons?

    FWIW I didn't even know there exist laptops with a middle button.

      Many of the Dell latitudes have them, I've actually got FIVE mouse buttons (two closer to me which are left and right) and two above the touchpad (left, middle and right), and as well as a trackpad it's got a pointer "nipple".

      How do people do instant copy/paste without a middle mouse button? Must be very tedious to have to right mouse/copy, right mouse/paste. And how about opening link in new tab???
      I guess if you're used to a Mac and a one button mouse, two buttons is a huge step forwards. Come to the elite group of three-button users!!! :-)

        On a laptop when I don't have an external mouse I use the keyboard. Control-C and Control-V. And open in new tab is Control-Click on most browsers.

          As I said, I'm using either 3-finger tap to make a middle-mouse-button event, or simultaneous clicking left and right buttons (i.e. because I have a crappy touchpad, where 3-finger taps doesn't always work).
