Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

In the 'Questions' page point your mouse at the 'line' which separate the tabs(Newest, Frequent, Votes, etc) and the questions and see the mouse pointer transforms in between the two shapes (Hand & Arrow) rapidly.
Can anyone explain why is this happening? Is it a bug?

Fine for me on Opera 12, Windows 7. What's your browser, OS, etc? – dsolimano Nov 30 '13 at 15:51
I use Chrome in Windows 8 – Varun Das Nov 30 '13 at 15:54
Do you mean that it alternates between the pointer (the hand) and the arrow? – Nathan Osman Dec 4 '13 at 21:07
@NathanOsman Yes – Varun Das Dec 5 '13 at 15:27
@VarunDas That's not a bug, it's a feature. It indicates to the user that those items are clickable. – Asad Saeeduddin Dec 6 '13 at 10:03
@Asad I know 'hand' indicates the item is clickable. What I asked is why it switches in between the two shapes at a single area? – Varun Das Dec 7 '13 at 1:59
