I'm curious if there is a way, without installing a 3rd party mouse driver, to have the functionality of the page forward and page back buttons in Safari mapped to the standard back and forth buttons on my multibutton logitech mouse in Leopard.

I was happy to that Exposé and Dashboard now have native multibutton mouse support in Leopard, but I can't find a way to get Safari to recognize the forward/back buttons on my MX500. Is this possible?

I would totally use Safari if it had a Mouse Gestures Plug in like my Firefox. Love it.

Indeed it is. I've been a SteerMouse user for about 3 years now. It's just that with the upgrade to Leopard, I wanted to see if there was a way to do it within the OS itself.

So i noticed the back and forth buttons go back and forth in the Finder with Coverflow. So obviously, the OS natively recognizes those keys and can assign functions to them, but i guess they don't leave that up to the end user?

Used Steermouse in Tiger, and I'm currently using it in Leopard, too.

Put aside everything else - I'm NOT sure how much placebo is at work here - but my mouse response (tracking/movement) got a lot smoother and more responsive with Steermouse.

And when I kill Steermouse when running in Leopard - my mouse response goes to (@*#.

Not to mention, I have got EVERY button mapped on my MX Revolution, including the page forward/backward in Safari.
