    I struggle to keep my big toe on the left button so I prefer to grip with my little toe.

    Seriously though, I've always been index on left mouse button, middle on scroll and right mouse button, and 4th/little fingers on the right of the mouse.

    I had a friend back in Middle School who was born with deformed hands, he actually used to be perfectly able to use his feet and toes to control a mouse it was quite fascinating, to add to this list he could also paint and write using his feet.

    I do the three finger scroller, think of the extra effort involved moving that one finger over to the scroller and then scrolling, wouldn't you all be more efficient using three fingers on all buttons at once for quick fast moving action

    I'll settle for burning the additional calorie over a year and use my index finger for left click and scroll wheel... every calorie counts!

    Haha - Brilliant, though I'm fortunate enough to be able to eat a whole pack of hob nobs most days and never put on a pound, this will change of course but I will be as lazy as I can be for as long as I can and if that means using three fingers I shall
