    I have noticed every person i have seen use a Mac laptop scrolls with their index finger and middle finger on the trackpad, i personally have always used middle finger/ring finger scrolling.

    how do YOU scroll? (if this is the wrong section i am sorry!)

    Middle and ring finger. Just feels more natural.

    Yeah, it seems like we're the only ones. I just tried it with the index finger and middle finger but it feels awkward.

    middle and ring. FWIW, I'd sooner use my ring and pinky before my index and middle.

    Anyone click with anything other than their thumb?

    Good one. That's my top reason why I don't want two buttons down there, because now I use my thumb, which happens to fall right on the middle part of the button below the trackpad.

    Scroll: middle and ring
    Navigate: index
    Click: usually thumb, sometimes tap-click with index

    Scroll: middle and ring --->> i love two-finger scrolling.
    Navigate: index or ring, mostly ring lately for some reason.
    Click: thumb

    to update

    scroll: middle and ring
    navigate: usually middle
    secondary click i usually place two fingers on the touchpad and use my index finger to click, im not sure i i dont usually use the two finger touch for the secondary click.. but whatever.

    and yes, i would go crazy without two finger scrolling now! I go on my fathers laptop or moms, and its nearly impossible to use the trackpad, they are so dinky to!
