The cursor to change

We often talk about the universality of solutions, but have we done so with the mouse cursor?


Increasingly, I encounter in presentations with a round cursor. For myself, I explain this by the fact that with the advent of touch screens the control element became our finger, which when pressed on the surface has a rounded shape. Unlike the conventional cursor in the form of an arrow, the circle also corresponds to other features of the finger: touched the screen - the circle appeared, pressed harder - became larger, as the area of ​​contact increased. Perhaps it is the desire to understandable and universal solutions will help to change the cursor and systematize its behavior on all devices.
