So, yesterday I whined a bit about the MacBook’s trackpad. Today was problem-solving mode.
Turns out it’s mostly the lame Apple trackpad driver, rather than the hardware itself. Fortunately, there is an alternative: SideTrack. It adds back the nice scroll-at-edge feature us Synaptics users have grown used to, and adds a bunch more bits of trackpad configurability that Apple didn’t see fit to include.
It’s $15 shareware; I’m going to try it out for a while to be sure it’s worthwhile.
Hint to Apple: buy this guy’s software and ship a better trackpad driver. It’s lame to have to pay an extra $15 for something that should work better out of the box.
