Cursor Mania

leave a comment »

I told you that I prefer a different service to Freeze.com’s offerings of cursors; this is that service. But I have good news and bad news.

The GOOD News: This program lets you change your computer’s cursor to almost anything: spinning flowers, glittery pointers… no, really, anything.

More GOOD News: This program also has a smiley application for inserting smileys into your emails and such. It also has a screensaver app (but Freeze.com is my recommendation), an ecard app (I prefer 123Greetings.com) and a horoscope website (no comment).

The BAD News: It’s a browser toolbar.

The WORSE News: It’s longer than the screenshot above. Like, way longer.

So if you like toolbars, then you’re good to go. If you don’t but still want to customize your cursor, I’d get it anyway. I don’t mind the toolbar.

And here’s a little tip: When you’re waiting for something to load on these cursors, it reverts back to your original Windows cursor. To give it more splash, download this app, which installs cursors into your regular Windows Control Panel mouse settings. Then go to your mouse settings pane (for me on Windows 7 it’s Start>Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Mouse (under “Devices and Printers”)>Pointers. Then click on a pointer and apply it. Go to the Cursor Mania options and click on a cursor. It’ll override the cursor you picked in Control Panel, but still have the cool “loading” animations of the other cursor. Clear as mud!
