Tap-to-click has been a thing for at least a couple decades.

I tried it on my office macbook. .Nothin  ( Linux, not osx )

"generic" x86 Linux laptop. Nothin. 

Just seems to be my 2 'flip' Chromebooks so far.

Will try my ARM Linux laptop and my 2 personal macbooks ( Linux on both ) this weekend.

Reading more, its not normally 'enabled' and depending on OS and windowing system, will decide what hoops you jump thru.

Going to have to try it however, as one of the reasons i hate track pads the is the click, it always moves the damned mouse cursor on me.   But this touch-to-click.. does not.

Or you could just bring along a mouse :)

Today ... ok not today, but two weeks ago ... I learned that wired and wireless mice have switched places. Wired mice are now the premium offering and every cheap mouse is wireless. At least in retail that's the case, anyway.

I do when i can, but sometimes its not overly convenient to whip one out when you are out and about from your home base.

( another reason i never noticed i bet.. )

 

I have mixed feelings about wireless mice. GOOD ones are decent. bad ones, are dreadful

I don't like to take any chances. I go wired as often as possible. If you do videogames in modern consoles, you know that running out of batteries in your wireless controller destroys your gaming night.

And that's what I found when I went to the computer store ... wired mice tend to be "gaming mice" with big chonky controls and multicolor LEDs and brand names like "Mega Death Blaster 9000". I just want to point at things and not change batteries.

In the end I selected a simple Logitech wireless that feels good in my hand and has a blue and black color scheme that matches my keyboard. It doesn't have a zillion buttons but it does have the forward/backward buttons on the side, to which I've grown accustomed.

My mousie is a SteelSeries Rival 710.  Costed me $100.  Is good mousie.  Not many frills.  Does have two DPI settings and a button to switch between them, which is useful at times.  1200 DPI for pixel-purrfect operations, 2400 DPI for everything else.  It also has a replaceable tail, because mousie tails seem to always fail at some point.

That alone is a great feature...  That should have been standard from day one.
