Move Mouse To Default Button

Registered by MountainX on 2008-02-14

I would like that when I open a dialog window, the mouse cursor to jump to the default button. A control center option is needed to set this behavior on/off.

+(positive facts)
+fast response to dialog windows (especially those with Yes/No or Continue/Cancel or those with only the OK button)
+less effort in moving the mouse
+moving the mouse to the default button will make easier to click even the non-default buttons (because all buttons are close together)
+behavior is already familiar to, and expected by, many users (including Windows and Mac users)

-(why not implement this)
-takes the mouse control out of the user
