Interestingly, Gmail recently changed its cursor behavior: while in the "Classic" version of Gmail interface there was a clear distinction between "links to the objects" (individual mail items, folders etc.) with pointer cursor and "buttons of the actions" (reload, reply, delete, change settings...) with default cursor, in the "New" interface all clickable elements have the pointer cursor. Isn't this an evidence of the prevalence of the "pointer means clickable" approach on the web?
