Cursor Eye can be semitransparent (in Win2k and higher). It makes the program more comfortable, because you can see a content of screen through the eye window. You can specify the shape of window, width of border, and turn on/off the cursor image.

Cursor Eye allows designers to pick a color value of pixel under the cursor using a predefined keyboard shortcut. Picking of the cursor position is also possible. Such feature makes the Cursor Eye a perfect color picker tool.
