Cursor Mania Review:
What is Cursor Mania?
Tired of the same old white cursor computers have used for ages?
Everybody else is too. Since the beginning of time (computer age anyway), Windows has been using the same old standard white arrow mouse
pointer. Instead of adding new features for users who like flashy designs and cool bright colors, Windows has left us no options... until Cursor Mania came along.
Even though a lot of web surfers tend to ignore the sparkly advertisements,
Cursor Mania is a unique service that should be given some quality
recognition. Since Windows hasn't come up with a useful cursor service yet,
this MindSpark product provides you with an extensive collection of cursors to choose from and use.
Why should I use their services?
Along with guaranteeing you over 7,500 cursors, Cursor Mania requires no registration
and has no spyware or adware. Aside from being free of unwanted problems, Cursor Mania is free of charge!
It's also easy to uninstall at any time if you decide you don't want to use
But why should you bother downloading a simple mouse pointer? Well nobody can deny it, we all love things that are flashy and different! Instead of blending in with a crowd and willingly conforming, people love to own or have something others don't. Being a show-off can be
fun, especially when it doesn't cost you anything!
To help express your personality, Cursor Mania offers you numerous choices for pointers to use on your computer. To go along with their large collection, the service also offers internet users a variety of bonus features as well! Some of the extra features include: smileys, ecards, screensavers, skins, avatars, and a dynamic search assistant you can't find anywhere else. Because it
is a highly compatible internet service, Cursor Mania can typically be accessed through email and browser programs such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Outlook, Outlook Express, AOL, MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, ICQ, AIM, Google Talk, Incredimail.
Since Cursor Mania is compatible with your desktop and a handful of internet services, it can get confusing when you actually try to use the cursors. Every program is structured a certain way, so you have to take different steps to actually use a cursor of your choosing.
To make sure that you don't slam your head against your keyboard or threaten your laptop with a hammer, here are some easy-to-follow steps to help you add cursors to a website.
Adding a cursor to a web page
Anybody can add a cursor to the web page of their choice once they have an HTML code and are using a compatible browser.
To add a cursor to a web page:
Click on a cursor in the CursorMania screen and the HTML code will appear at the bottom of the Cursor Mania window.
Click on the "Copy" button next to the HTML code.
Paste the code onto your web page anywhere within the page's <HTML> tags.
Adding a cursor to a MySpace page
To add your favorite cursor to your MySpace page, simply do the following:
Click on a cursor in the CursorMania screen and the HTML code will appear at the bottom of the Cursor Mania window. Click on the "Copy" button next to the HTML code.
Log into your MySpace profile and click on the "Edit Profile" button.
Paste the HTML code into one of the text fields (such as "About Me" or "Interests") on the page.
Click on the "Save All Changes" button on the bottom of the page. Once that's done, you and visitors will now be able to see the cursor you have selected.
Adding a cursor to a blog (e.g. Blogger or TypePad)
To add your favorite cursor to your blog, follow these steps:
Click on a cursor in the Cursor Mania screen and the HTML code will appear at the bottom of the Cursor Mania window. Click on the "Copy" button next to the HTML code.
Log into your blog account and click on the "Edit HTML" tab.
Then simply paste the code into the text entry field. Once done, visitors will now be able to see the cursor you have selected when they go to your blog.
Installing Cursor Mania on Your Computer or Laptop:
Since some program installations can be extremely irritating, several services and products have now turned to more simple installers. People of all ages hate having to deal with installations that either take forever or end up freezing their computer! But good news for those interested in downloading Cursor Mania: the service installs quickly and easily!
In order to download the installation, users first
visit the Cursor Mania website here using your preferred web browser. It may be confusing at first to find the download link because of all the bright colors and glitter designs, but the download link is fairly easy to find. Just follow the bright arrow or button to find the link.
Once you have clicked the "Click Here To Start" button with your mouse, you will be taken to the download page where a download window will pop up in your internet browser. After you save and download the file to your computer, click on the Cursor Mania icon and a window will appear and ask you if you want to continue with the installation. Once you read the license agreement and click the "Accept" button located on the bottom-right of the window, the service will install Cursor Mania into your main internet browser. To see the different features offered through the service, all you have to do is restart your browser and you're ready to go!
Once your browser is open, you should be able to click with your mouse on the Cursor Mania icon on the toolbar below the section where you type in a web address. Clicking the icon lets users access thousands of
mouse pointers that are sorted in a variety of sections such as "Fantasy/Sci-Fi," "Lefties" and "Signs/Symbols."
Advantages to Using Cursor Mania:
Sometimes, just sometimes, the little white mouse pointer can get annoying. If you're having a bad day, it can behave like a jealous ex-lover. Depending on how badly it wants to tick you off, the white cursor won't move where you want it to, it will disappear, it will stayed transformed as an hour glass, or it will just freeze in the middle of your screen.
So what do you do when you just want to get rid of the tiny little devil-pointer?
The answer is simple:
download Cursor Mania! Sure you may not be getting rid of the annoying mouse pointer, but at least you'll be able to make it look cool or flashy. Windows Vista and internet programs don't offer you the option of changing your computer's cursor, so users don't have the option of using a unique design.
Windows does offer the option of changing your cursor through your computer's settings, but you aren't given a lot of choice. Instead of having different colors and designs, Windows offers you some alternatives that include a pen, arrows and a pointing hand. Hoorah! Aside from Windows, MySpace is also known to offer a variety of cursors you can use. However, the only catch is that you or other users can only use a unique cursor when you visit your actual MySpace page.
Unlike the other services that offer you almost no variety, Cursor Mania has thousands of free cursors to choose from. Some types of cursors include smiley faces, dinosaurs, music, food, flags and weird and unusual pointers.

mouse pointers just don't cut it anymore!)
