I somehow like the way that w3m (an HTML pager and web browser) allows
to use the mouse: Of course there's a lot I can do with a double-click
(like follow hyperlinks), but with a single click, I can position the
mouse. Marking only actually works when I additionally press Shift.
Very similar behavior can also be seen in Midnight Commander.
