    A browser in which you can specify CSS code that you would like to block. For some reason I spend a bit of time on another forum that is geared toward beginners in web design and often they change the cursor. If there is one thing I cannot stand on a web site, it's that.

    I wish I could go into my browser settings and tell it I want any CSS blocked that reads cursor: XXX;.

    If you can give me any good reason to change the default normal and link cursors I'll give you a cookie. But there aren't any reasons, so don't bother trying to come up with one.

    You usually can in most modern browsers; it's very easy in Safari. Use a custom stylesheet and try:

    Code:
    *
    {
        cursor: default !imporant;
    }
    ...or however you define the mouse pointer. The !important will override most other definitions.

    Oh, never knew you could do that. So if I wanted to do that in Firefox I would probably just go through the settings to where the style sheet is held and upload my own?

    Apparently some people don't even understand the nouveau-retro-deco arte of spamming, wherein you post a link to the spammy site in question (because I was intending on saving the link and putting it on the Hall of Spam page that's in the works on my site). Loser...

    Anyway, Eddy I do hear tell that Firefox has a plugin that runs javascripts externally to 'enhance' your browsing experience. I'll try to find the name of it and send it your way. I'm a Firefox fan myself.

    Never heard of Maxthon. Gees, there are a lot of browsers out there. I think I'll try it sometime. If it's based on the IE engine, does that mean it renders web pages the same way? It would be a shame to have to compensate for yet another browser, lol.

    Exactly like IE, only many more options. Was based on Mozilla, only more features: super drag & drop, ad hunter, popup blocker, rss snifer & reader, mouse gestures, and tons of plugins. Anyway I haven't had luck finding the Firefox java plugin yet, been busy here at work. But I'll find it.

    Eddy, found it, it's called greasemonkey. Good article at hack a day here. Short of it is you can customize anything you want on any webpage throuhg use of your own code.
