Does this mean that website is forced to release the lock before mouse-up
happens?  Or did you just mean that a website can start the lock during a
click?  If it's latter, I have a problem with that.  I know many people who
select text on a page just to read them.  They obviously don't expect their
cursors being tracked/locked by a website.

Also, once my mouse is locked, how do I free it?
