Opera Software Since the launch of Opera 10.5 in March 2010, I've been using it as my primary browser, whether at work or at home. Using Ubuntu at work, and a Windows netbook at home, I wanted a fast browser for my netbook and a coherent browsing experience on both operating systems. And this is where Opera 10.5 (and newer) fits perfectly.

I don't know about you, but my trackpads all have BUTTONS next to them.

yes, but most trackpads don't have a middle button. I for one have never seen any with my own eyes, whether in real life or in photographs.
Some don't support two-finger pressing the trackpad so that this action can be assigned to the middle click.

Does a Thinkpad T43 qualify for having a "trackpad with middle button" ?

At least in Linux, you can press both buttons at the same time to get a middle-click. Also, you can usually turn on the multi-finger tapping. I would assume there is a way to do this in Windows with the right driver, but I don't know for a fact.

Given we're talking about clicking and holding to get the drop-down menu on forward/back, what does middle click have to do with it?

Now if you just want to kvetch over middle-click on laptops as others have noted clicking both buttons gives you middle click in most OS, though this can conflict with Opera's flip navigation if you don't time it right... though you could always assign it to something simple like shift-right click.

Though when I'm on a laptop and want to scroll, I usually just use page-up/page-down or *SHOCK* the arrow keys.
