Really minor, but can we update the cursor from white to #00aacc in the search field

Thanks!
This isn't something we really have the ability to control through CSS as of yet. Last thing I found standards-wise was a proposal [1] for CSS4 to target an input caret color, but I haven't seen it go anywhere. I also looked through all the Mozilla CSS extension [2] and couldn't find a single element that would enable us to make this change. In my opinion this isn't something we can target for 2.1.

ok, no worries Eli!  Thanks for getting back to me on it, i thought it would be a quick change but since it's not we don't need to worry about it for 2.1.
As far as I know this isn't currently possible and would require proposing a new feature for the CSS to accomplish. I suggest this probably isn't worth the effort so closing, but please re-open if you think it's worth the investment to get this level of polish.
