I think that there is a way to make your computer click when you press down and lift your finger off the mouse as well. I've seen youtube videos, and that tends to let people finish faster.

The trick is if you click left and right mouse button at the same time it automatically clicks everything around the current square. This is useful when you have flagged all the known obvious mines based on the numbers, then you do the combi-click to quickly clear areas. If there are any squares that are unspoken for, it will react differently - possibly killing you (I forget).
