I think it would be nice to have magnetic links :)
I mean that the mouse pointer is attracted by links.

Version 1.
When you make a fast, small movement with the pointer the page is searched for
links in that direction. If one is found the pointer is teleported directly on
that link.

Version 2.
Each link attract the pointer when this is moving slowly. So you jst have to
move pointer near a link to have it grabbed and placed on the link.

This two version can be used each alone or both together.

In some cases this could be annoying: pressing a key could disable this effect.

Do you think this could this be useful?

Bye

MASS-CHANGE:
This bug report is registered in the SeaMonkey product, but has been without a comment since the inception of the SeaMonkey project. This means that it was logged against the old Mozilla suite and we cannot determine that it's still valid for the current SeaMonkey suite. Because of this, we are setting it to an UNCONFIRMED state.

If you can confirm that this report still applies to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it back to the NEW state along with a comment on how you reproduced it on what Build ID, or if it's an enhancement request, why it's still worth implementing and in what way.
If you can confirm that the report doesn't apply to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it to the appropriate RESOLVED state (WORKSFORME, INVALID, WONTFIX, or similar).
If no action happens within the next few months, we move this bug report to an EXPIRED state.
