I made a website that moves your mouse cursor

A long-running question on StackOverflow asks: can a website move your mouse cursor? The answer which is marked as ”accepted” unequivocally states ”it isn’t possible”. The most up-voted answer (with 195 upvotes) is even more dramatic:

You cannot move the mousepointer with javascript. Just think about the implications for a second.

Well, I like a good challenge. And guess what? It’s done. I’ve been tinkering with this idea for a while now and decided to release it on this special day (International Cybersecurity Day). You can try it for yourself here.
