Almost every project I develop has a login page and I always toss this in to give it that subtle boost to the overall user experience. Once the page has loaded, the cursor location will automatically be set to the username field so the user doesn’t have to grab their mouse or tab over to it just to log in.

You're my friend, Fettes, but I totally disagree here. The most annoying thing in the world (next to rebooting for Windows Vista updates) is when your cursor moves as you're typing something because you navigated to a new page. Let me control my own mouse and stop moving the focus.

A user interface should never move as you go to use it!!!
