I am using a Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 on a Mac Book Pro (ironic?).

I am very happy with it.

Whenever I go to WIN7 (using Bootcamp) I have extra functionality on it. For example, the back-left button (not regular left button) to go back on browser history.

My question is: Is there a way to achieve similar functionality on Mac OS X? Is there a Microsoft specific driver for it?

Microsoft's official drivers are here, but there is no entry for a Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000.

If you don't mind the price tag, I would check out SteerMouse.

You can also try USB Overdrive.
