ABSTRACT
We present a general-purpose implementation of a
target-aware pointing technique, functional across an entire
desktop and independent of application implementations.
Specifically, we implement Grossman and Balakrishnan's
Bubble Cursor, the fastest general pointing facilitation
technique in the literature. Our implementation obtains the
necessary knowledge of interface targets using a combination
of pixel-level analysis and social annotation. We discuss
the most novel aspects of our implementation, including
