Change Safari cursor shape based on link target
Authored by: RussellK on Jun 21, '07 11:34:44AM

Now I've tried everything suggested, and still no dice.

I've created a text file, pasted in the author's text, saved as a .css file, created a /Safari folder in my /Application Support folder and placed my .css file in that folder then pointed to the file in Safari's preference pane.

Can anyone suggest a good example on the web where such "open in new window" links are found?

Okay...now I see that this works on SOME links targeted to open in new windows, but not ALL such links (i.e., I'm guessing the pages I was testing have css already dictating the cursor styles for their links to new windows.

This makes the hint's functionality too subjective and unreliable for me. But it's a great idea...

There are two links ("Aperture" at the top; "Web site" at the bottom) on this page: www.macworld.com/2007/02/reviews/aperture152/index.php.

In my experience, it doesn't matter where the css file is located; only that it's selected in Safari's preferences. Here's the sum total of my css file, from start to finish:

/* Change RSS feed pages to reduce title size and wrap titles */
body[onClick="articleClicked(null)"][onLoad="setup(null)"] .content .articlehead .subject {
    white-space: normal !important;
    font-size: 85% !important;
    letter-spacing: 0.03em !important;
}

/* Remove link underlining and adjust link color */
a:hover { color: #990000 !important; }
a:active { color: #00CCFF !important; }
a { text-decoration:none !important; }

/* Change cursor for links that open in new window */
:link[target="_blank"],
:visited[target="_blank"],
:link[target="_new"],
:visited[target="_new"] {
cursor: ne-resize; }
