The Best Mouse For Web Design
Computer mice are our main tools of the trade, and yet so many people don’t even try to find the one that suits them. This ends now: today, we’ve found the best mouse for web design to make your work life so much easier.
The best mouse for Web Design
I don’t know why it is like that, but most people truly don’t do anything to make their life easier. They use any mouse or keyboard without even trying to figure out if they are right for them. There are different kinds of mice for a reason: some are great for left-handed people, some offer more ergonomics, and some have more features. Depending on your style, you might require a different type of mouse.
Types of mice
First of all, we recommend looking into at least mid-range models. There are decent affordable mice too, but since you’ll be spending so much time working with one, it’d be prudent to find something decent.
Most mice are separated into types: laser or optical, wired or wireless, ergonomic or Magic Mouse. For web designers, wireless is more than enough. Laser beats optical, but the difference isn’t that big nowadays. And as for ergonomics, you decide for matters for you. There are vertical mice for people whose wrists tend to get tired after a day’s work, but most are fine with the traditional form factor.
The best ones
Our (and everybody else’s, it seems like) absolute favorite is the Logitech MX Master 3. Literally, every list mentions it, and, well, here I am actually using it right now. It checks every box: it’s ergonomic (but ONLY for righties, which is a bummer, as there’s no southpaw model), sensitive, accurate, and highly customizable. It’s amazing for any type of work and works well with any OS. It’s also not cheap, but you’ll never look at another mouse again after trying the Logitech MX Master 3. The Logitech MX Master 2S is similar and also very good.
For people who care about ergonomics, the Logitech MX Vertical is a natural choice. Good-looking and versatile, it offers everything while also saving you from wrist pain. The Logitech Lift is also a good choice. If you’re a leftie, go with Evoluent VerticalMouse 4.
If you’re looking for something classy and comfortable, the Microsoft Precision might be great for you. It’s gorgeous, light, and comfortable. Sadly, for righties only. For lefties, there’s the Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Mouse 3600 and, of course, the Magic Mouse from Apple.
