Using Custom Cursors with CSS

In this post you will see how easy is use a custom cursor in your web site with CSS.

The cursor CSS property allows you to use a set of predefined options like ‘pointer’, ‘default’, ‘help’ or ‘wait’. But that’s not all you can do, this property also allows you to use your own cursor using a url():

body {
cursor: url('custom-cursor.ico'), default;

To see it working check out this demo.
