Auto Hide Cursor

CRX id


Description from extension meta

Hides the cursor after a configurable amount of time

Description from store Automatically hides the Cursor on webpages after a configurable amount of seconds. Hides the cursor on all pages at the same time. Also comes with a keyboard shortcut to hide the cursor: Ctrl+Shift+H/Cmd+Shift+H idk why but the cursor annoys me when I'm reading a blogpost or something and pressing *any* button to hide it is just way too much of a hassle for me. See also https://xkcd.com/1319/, except replace "time" with "not fun".

  • (2022-02-07) Bailey Laird: Works fine on a webpage such as Wikipedia. Timer does not work though. Also, when trying to move the cursor again it reappears.
  • (2020-12-11) Luis Santos: Doesn't work anymore.
  • (2020-10-02) Jebediah Cornholis: 5 stars to even out the unfair opinions, but I found the problem. #1. Works on Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube, which is what I was looking for. #2. Works on Calmly Writer, another + to distraction-free writing. BONUS! The only problem was when the cursor size changed(Accessibility Options) it began blinking as reported above. C'mon, people. You get free, and you expect the world. Be grateful and maybe more people will gift you more often.
