      Razer Synapse vs X-Mouse Button Control opinions
      Some users think Razer Synapse is a great alternative to X-Mouse Button Control, some don't.
      Razer Synapse only works with Razer hardware and their inherent properties. It does not allow the same amount of customization and function as X-Mouse Button Control. In fact, the two pieces of software are wholly separate in nature.

      Modifies the Mac acceleration curve to better suit your style. Uses most of the code from MouseFix and wrapps it into a gui.
