Scrolling using the wheel on my mouse is a little funky on some windows,
particularly in Firefox: the text jumps around a little and decorations
(generally unwanted but present nonetheless) don't move as they ought to.
Up till recently I did have a mouse without a wheel, which I liked, but
such mouses(?) are no longer easy to get, and I have got to like using

considered a trackball? I like the Kensington optical
trackball. I use the one without the scroll device cirumscribing the
ball, since I consider the
ball sufficient, but you might want the scroll device. These are not
expensive, and they take up a lot less room on a crowded desktop. I
really despise mouses (mice?).
