I just setup my Mac Mini to do some stuff and I'm noticing that when I'm in Chrome and push mouse 4 or mouse 5 Chrome doesn't navigate forward or back as it does on Windows. Is there anyway to get the Windows Behavior on my Mac?

OS X doesn't seem to natively support more than three mouse buttons. However, you can use a mouse prefpane such as SteerMouse to bind mouse4 and mouse5 to cmd + [ and cmd + ] - which are shortcuts to go forward and back in web browsers - as seen in this image, which will give you the Windows-like behavior you're looking for.
