Re-run. The takeaway from that discussion was, "no good". Can't copy-paste.

Nope, they're combining 'locating the mouse pointer on something of interest' and 'opening something of interest'.  That 'click' is necessary to indicate to the system that you really are 'ready' to go on to the next piece.

Trying to get the system to 'mind read' is fraught with peril.

Not only that, but clicking a mouse button is the only exercise I get during the day.

I remember that site. What I didn't like about it was the smoothness of everything. I prefer sharper/more immediate feedback. I choose to do something, I do it, the site responds, rather than I choose to do something, begin to move towards it, the site begins to respond, I rest where I want, and the site continues to flow around me.

I had a program that "clicked" your mouse every time you rested it. Acting on the theory that we only move the mouse when we want to click something, it was supposed to help avoid repetitive stress injuries. I used it almost a month & never quite got used to it.

How much more work that must be to program, vs. just the simple click.
