Disable mouse middle click smooth scrolling (a.k.a auto scroll).
This extension disabled the little auto-scroll circle that appears when you click the middle mouse button accidentally. The middle mouse button will still work to open links in a new tab. I use a ThinkPad laptop with Windows 7 and it's working for me. Let me know whether it works for you too.
Remember: Chrome extensions are disabled on the extensions site. To test if this works go to another site.
