track mouse or cursor location

I wrote simple mouse/cursor tracker code in JavaScript to track mouse location on the client screen. In this blog, I have mentioned the cursor or mouse for the same meaning.

I assume everyone knows the mouse is not part of DOM. It is a part of the Operating system. DOM listens to different events of a mouse. for example: “mousemove”, “mouseup” and “mousedown” etc. Please refer here for understanding different events.

I have used “mousemove” event listener to track the location of the cursor.

Here is code snippet for cursor-tracker source code.
