Change Safari cursor shape based on link target
Authored by: osxfan57 on Jun 21, '07 09:43:33AM

I also don't have a Safari folder in any of my Application Support folders and I'm using Safari 3 on 10.4.10 as well. It's not a question of technical competence in implementing the hint if the first step describes a folder that doesn't exist.

Change Safari cursor shape based on link target

So I created a Safari subfolder in the ~/Library/Application Support folder. Then I created a text file with the contents as described here. Then I saved it in that new Safari folder as userContent.css. Then quit Safari. Restarted. No changes to cursor whether link opens in new window, new tab or same window. Suggestions? Thanks.

/* Change cursor for links that open in new window */
Note the KEY words "links that open in new window".
If the link does NOT specify open a NEW window, the cursor will NOT change. Not many links specify open in new window.
I you have the menu View > Status Bar on (it is at the bottom of the Safari window), you can see if the link specifies opening a NEW window.
It is working for me with Safari Version 2.0.4

The links I tried did in fact specify (and do) open in a new window. Still doesn't work. Big deal - life goes on.

I did all the things you did PLUS the last step of going to Safari Preferences>Advanced and then clicked on the Style Sheet drop down menu and selected Other. Then I navigated to the .css file created and selected it.

Did not even have to restart Safari. Started working right away.
