The cursor property in CSS can be used to change the mouse pointer when hovering over an element. For example, setting the style for a <li> element will change the mouse pointer to a hand pointer when hovering over a list item.
The cursor property can also be used to inform users of the mouse operations that can be performed at the current location, such as text selection, activating help or context menus, copying content, and resizing tables.
Additionally, the cursor property can be used to specify the type of cursor that should be displayed to the user, such as changing the cursor to a hand when hovering over a link.
