Button's shouldn't have a hand cursor (part 2)(adamsilver.io)

    Sometimes the standards are defined by the way people use a functionality and not by the original intent of the designer.

    The majority of websites I visited, use the hand cursor as a cue to say that something is clickable. That created a pattern, a mental model around how the cursor works on the web.

    With some effort and time, we could revert this pattern. But why would we? Is it worth it?
