Description:: Are you running multiple monitors on your Mac? Download Wraparound and make your mousing around a little bit easire. Wraparound is an application intended for users with multiple screens or large monitors. After installing Wraparound your mouse cursor will be able to “wrap” around the multiple screens. Rather than spending time and energy moving the cursor across the screen, from one side to the other, simply drag it off one edge and it immediately appears on the other side.

Wow, would that actually make anything easier? You completely eliminate Fitts law on two sides of your screen to avoid having to drag "all the way" across two screens? Seems like a really poor tradeoff, given that dragging across screens in my case anyway is a whole lot rarer than trying to hit a target on the edge of one of the monitors (and I do, quite often, mis such targets when they are next to the edge separating the two monitors).

For a constructive comment: maybe if this (the "wrapping") was triggered by a hotkey ... and, hey, maybe the same hotkey could erect a "wall" between the normal monitor-monitor separation so I could hit the bottom-right corner of my left-most monitor without overshooting ...

I'd like to have Fitts' law on the left (my Dock) and wraparound on the right, one-way.
