Comet Systems releases enhanced Smart Cursors

Published on .

Comet Systems on Jan. 29 unveiled Smart Cursors. An outgrowth of Comet's Comet Cursor software, Smart Cursors allow Web surfers to click on a word on any Web page and gain more information about a word or term. The software is available at smartcursors.com. Once installed, users can select an Encyclopedia Cursor with definitions from Britannica.com; a Dictionary Cursor, which pulls from Houghton-Mifflin titles like the American Heritage dictionary and Roget's Thesaurus; and a Search Cursor, which links to Yahoo!, Google, AOL.com and other search sites.

Comet Systems has created cursors for clients including BellSouth, Sony Pictures Entertainment and United Media. Its branded cursors reach about 21 million unique users.
