Recognizing left/right mouse button clicks
I have an educational site.
I have some games, and I would like to create a game in which by positioning the mouse cursor over a box and clicking the left mouse button you get a different result than from clicking the right mouse button. This could also be done with the keyboard, of course, but it is easier to navigate a page using a mouse and then to use the same mouse for clicking.
My question is Is it a good idea to differentiate the mouse buttons like this?
I read that older browsers at leasr do not assign the same values for mouse buttons. Of course this could then be done on a browser to browser basis.
So should I use mouse buttons or keys?
