mouse ahead
Jump to user comments
The point-and-click analog of "type ahead". To manipulate
a computer's pointing device (almost always a mouse in this
usage, but not necessarily) and its selection or command
buttons before a computer program is ready to accept such
input, in anticipation of the program accepting the input.
Handling this properly is rare, but it can help make a WIMPenvironment much more usable, assuming the users are familiar
with the behaviour of the user interface.
