SideTrack trackpad driver
Raging Menace has released a Universal version of SideTrack, a replacement driver for Apple's laptops. It allows the trackpad to serve as multi-button scrolling mice. The new driver features vertical scrolling at the left or right edge of the pad, horizontal scrolling at the top or bottom edge of the pad, and the ability to map the hardware button to left or right click. Users can map trackpad taps to perform no action, left click, left click drag with or without drag lock, or right click. The software supports mapping trackpad corner taps to mouse buttons 1-6, or alternatively as simulated keystrokes. SideTrack provides extensive control over accidental input filtering, and is multi-user aware with full compatibility for Mac OS X fast user switching. SideTrack is priced at $15, and requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later.
