Review: 4ur-Windows-8-Mouse-Balls helps you decorate your cursor

Add a trail of bouncing balls to your mouse using this free portable program.

4ur-Windows-8-Mouse-Balls adds a nifty trail of bouncing balls to your PC's cursor. It lets you customize those balls just about any way you can think of and works in a matter of seconds. Though it might get really distracting after a while, it's really well-executed.

This program downloads as an executable file, so you can stick it on a portable hard drive and take it with you anywhere. That means you can use this program for a presentation or anything else where you need to draw more attention to your mouse. The program gives you red balls, but you can change them to different colors and even change the style to a tennis ball, soccer ball, or more. You can change the number of icons, speed, and transparency, as well. If you kick up the speed, the ball's movement will not lag at all. Although the name implies others, 4ur-Windows-8-Mouse-Balls works on most versions of Windows. One minor downside is that there are no keyboard shortcuts or mouse clicks that will get the balls off of your cursor.

If you like the old days of the ghost cursor, you might think 4Ur-Windows-8-Mouse-Balls is cool. It does what it's meant to do very well, and gives you enough options to get the effect you're looking for.
