Looks like Tigers latest update, 10.4.7, didn’t just fix the Firefox font rendering issue but also added a new preference to the trackpad. MacBook users got to see this great feature ahead of the cutting edge crew as those with the iBook replacement have been enjoying the feature since its release. But no longer, MacBook Pro users now can place two fingers on the trackpad and then click the button and, presto!, up comes a context sensitive menu as if you had just hit a right mouse button! Woo hoo! How great is this?

All you need to do is download the update and then go to System Preferences. Go to Keyboard & Mouse settings and select the Trackpad button. Enable the “Place two fingers on trackpad and click button for secondary click” check box and you’re set. After that, simply put two fingers on the trackpad and then click the button (while your two fingers are still on the pad) and there you go. This trick also works if you click the button first and then tap with your two fingers; however, if there is an applicable left mouse button event, this won’t work as the left action will happen. :)

Enjoy the new added trick for all y’all MacBook Pro users!
