  • Eye care: the shade will fade in and fade out in a specified timeout.

Mouse Halo is an image permanently shown around the mouse cursor. The classic halo is a ring surrounding the cursor. However, any image can be used as a halo source. Even more, the image can be positioned aside from the cursor. A free online halo gallery is accessible from the preferences panel - an easy way to import new halos. The user can create custom halos too.
