BetterMouse is Better

Since Logitech decided to add their unremovable AI junk to Logi Options+ you may be looking for a new driver.

Turns out BetterMouse can turn your Logitech MX Master into a Magic Mouse. You get two direction scrolling, proper gestures and smooth scrolling. It uses less than 1% CPU and 100MB memory. The Logi AI driver was already sitting at 250MB without it being used once.

BetterMouse is under active development and was just updated last week. For people in the US, its $7.99 for a five-device license, with a full-featured seven-day trial.

Configurable elements of the user interface include:

  • Scrolling
  • Cursor
  • Button Gesture
  • Keyboard
  • Exception Apps

Other mouse drivers available include Better Touch Tool (also good for trackpads), Linear Mouse (free), and Steer Mouse.

If you are looking for a new mouse to use with your Mac, here are some current recommendations.
