When viewing a website from a desktop device, the cursor is the main component that bridges the gap between the user and the website. If you are creative enough, you can use this cursor to your advantage to boost website interaction and engagement rates like never before.
What is a Custom Cursor?
A custom cursor is changing the default icon design of the mouse cursor “pointer”.
When To Use Them?
Imagine designing an incredible website experience for an event page with animations, parallax effects, and moving objects. However, the cursor has the same old system default design. It can break the user experience.
Instead, you can use a custom cursor to make it more fun to interact with the website. Give users directions on where to go and what to do. And more importantly, to make your website stand out from the crowd.
In this list, we take a closer look at custom cursors to get inspiration and use them on our sites.
