What apps on the Mac use the hand cursor besides a browser? I remember
looking at apps on OS X when I started using Revolution because seeing
a hand all of the time seemed foreign to me. In my (admittedly) small
sampling I didn't come across any. It seems to me that the arrow
cursor is the accepted method of interacting with apps unless over a
link. Was the hand something that was used more in OS 9?
