    I seem to accidentally drag things if I'm moving the cursor if I have it set to tap and drag.

    For those that like to tap, do you have dragging enabled? Do you have problems accidentally dragging things as you move your cursor across the desktop.

    I like tap all the way. I hate having to actually push to click.

    I did, but turned it off because for some reason I would often drag things when I didn't mean to.

    I can't stand using tap to click. Push to click for me is the only way to go.

    I really like push. It's the kind of thing that was missing from a normal trackpad (PC) for me. It makes dragging much easier.

    Same here. Tapping even with drag lock doesn't feel right and it doesn't work half the time.

    The click sound when "pushing" the trackpad is too noisy. Don't know how you guys put up with it in a quiet room.

    I use tap mainly (99.99%) but I have to use click too for things like click and hold on a running app in the doc to show windows.

    Clicking gets harder the closer you are to the top which I don't like.

    I use push, because with the trackpad and scrolling, you might accidentally click something. i would rather push to click then have to move the cursor to the side of the page with no links to scroll :p
