I've gotten used to the feature in Firefox that lets you close tabs by clicking on them with the scroll wheel.

Now sometimes I forget that Windows is not Firefox and I find myself accidentally scroll-clicking on items in my taskbar. Is there a way I can get this feature to work in Windows?

I was looking for this a long time ago, myself. Opera spoilt me.

Does anyone have a clue?

You can close applications and windows by holding Alt or Ctrl or the WinKey and clicking on them with the scroll wheel with the program I posted here.
I don't know if it's possible to get it working by clicking on items in the taskbar but I'll look into it. :)

I have a program for my mouse that does that.
The program came with the mouse when i bought it. :)
