Have you tried the latest Microsoft Wireless Optical mouse ? What interested me to try was the new scroll wheel, which gives you the smoothest scroll I have ever experienced, and the possibility to scroll horizontally by tilting the scroll wheel to the left or right.
The scroll experience is awesome, unfortunately the ergonomic design of the mouse gaves me cramps in the wrist, and the horizontal scroll required the Microsoft driver to be installed.
But I discovered quite by accident this morning that horizontal scrolling is built in Mac OS X. (for as long as you own a scroll wheel mouse)
Hold the shift key down while using your scroll wheel, and the content scrolls horizontally.
This is not new. MacOSXHints published this hint back in October 2003 - but I was quite pleased to stumble upon it by accident!
