    Doesn't work in Opera. It does work in FF. If it can work in FF it can work in Opera. Your code branching is off.

    Move your mouse to the right edge of the screen then scroll over. Repeat. The screen stretches indefinitely.

    It's an interesting idea, but the motion is a bit rigid, and I don't like the cursors being to the right of the cursor when stationary. It seems... forced. They also regenerate at a linear rate, which makes it seem jumpy. A faster moving mouse just means they take longer to catch up. Slower, and they regenerate at the same page, meaning they seems to follow closer.

    Also, using mouse cursor images is impractical because they may not match many users. I'm on a mac, with a black cursor, for example. And some people have strange cursors.

    Not to say that it's badly made. Just a few flaws.

    The other issue is that dynamic drive is now leaning toward practical scripts, rather than just fun effects like this, so I'm not sure it would be accepted for that reason.
