    yes it does! I normally have a 3-button mouse at my desk, but this utility is useful for situations when I need to use the built-in trackpad for my powerbook.

    Isn't this feature (click and hold the button to display the context menu) already built in OS X? I've been using it whenever I'm too lazy to right click... :qmark:

    tried what you mentioned and was surprised that it worked when i clicked and held mouse button down but only within the browser (mozilla firefox). tried it on the desktop and on mail.app but holding down mouse button did not bring up the context menu.
