Patch 1.14.3 - Controller Input fixes

This is a small patch to fix an issue with clicks sometimes not registering in browser windows. Google Chrome still has issues with touch input so if this update doesn't solve your issue, unchecking "Use Touch Input" in Virtual Desktop's Input Options should help; this will however disable touch gestures.

“These are the kinds of programs that change the way people look at technology. In this case, it’s a program that, for some people, might actually make virtual reality a enjoyable, even practical, replacement for their monitor.”
Kotaku

“It's an incredibly polished app that take minimal resources to provide a number of functions that feel like they should be a standardised part of the VR experience coming to consumer homes.”
Destructoid

“This is the first program you should buy for your Oculus Rift”
