Microsoft’s IntelliMouse input devices are finally compatible with the Mac, after the company posted Mac drivers for download on its Web site.

The USB IntelliMouse devices feature programmable buttons and a scrolling wheel. The wheel can be rolled forward or backward instead of clicking on a scroll bar or arrow and documents can be scrolled automatically using the AutoScroll feature.

In addition, the wheel can be used without having to use menus or toolbars to zoom in on documents and images.

The drivers work with Mac OS 8.5.1 or greater and with Microsoft USB compatible mice.
