I just tested this using:
https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/d4e/raw-file/tip/mouse-event-test.html

Q&D browser test:

                  Chrome    Firefox   IE   Saf
                 Win  Mac  Win   Mac  Win  Mac
left click        y    y    y     y    y    y
left dblclick     y    y    y     y    y    y
mid click         -    y    -     -    y    y
mid dblclick      -    y    -     -    -    y
right click       -    -    -     -    -    -
right dblclick    -    -    -     -    -    -

Middle click often led to scrolling-mode for browsers that didn't produce a
click.
Right click always pulled up a context menu.
