      Poor use case.
      Forward = hold left button, click right
      Back = hold right button, click left

    Accidentally going back on page on web browsers because every dumbshit butthole webdev thought it would be a good idea to put BACK and FORWARD on your mouse. Some real Shoe Size IQ thunkings going ons at Mozilla.

        I only dislike their function in web browsing. I love the buttons and every modern mouse should have them. I just don't like how they are BACK and FORWARD in web browsers. Page Down and Page Up like

        page up and page down

        suggested is much better imo. Or maybe Home and End.

          Free wheel makes that fairly pointless.
          Also having those as dedicated single buttons on my keyboard.

            Backspace has been Back on web browsers for a long time. Alt + Left Arrow and Left + Right Arrow also fulfil the function of BACK and FORWARD. You don't even have to take your hands off the Keyboard, buddy.

            And removed from some browsers.
            And while true that you can browse entirely by keyboard, I'd still stand by the forward back buttons being on the mouse being very convenient. I use them all the time.

            >press backspace to delete a character

            Actually it's because browsers have more control over your browser history than before. There were laws preventing shitbag webdevs from kidnapping your browser history because of this exact reason. It may be deprecated but people still use it. Look at Macs.

      macOS: just-this-app and all-windows-on-this-desktop Exposé
      Windows, GNOME-on-Debian: back and forward
      iPadOS: dunno, never tried (I keep a mouse plugged into one of my monitors, and sometimes I'll plug my iPad into it to get a bigger screen and slightly better speakers)
      Dota 2: frick, I forget. Probably something nondestructive like +voicerecord or Mumble/Discord voicechat because I accidentally pressed one of them a little too much

      they're just copying what Microsoft did for IE

      ctrl + w
      ctrl + tab

      binding a destructive action to a thumb button? Baller.

      How do you map a mouse button to super? I tried doing this a while back but couldn't figure out a way that didn't involve running something like xdotool every time I pressed the button.

    I have buttons on my mouse for forward & back, volume up & down, next & previous track and play/pause. Makes it easy to control music while playing vidya without having to alt-tab out or anything, and forward & back are just super convenient when surfing the web.

    By themselves? Show desktop and alt+tab. They also work as modifiers to perform other actions (next tab, previous tab, close tab, undo close tab, refresh, maximize/restore window, minimize window, close window, pause/play, mute/unmute, media next, media previous, volume up, volume down, zoom in, zoom out, cut, copy, paste, enter, escape, and much more). I recommend getting one with more buttons, though. Two is a bit anemic unless you want to compromise on shortcuts.
