Slider indicators have grown in popularity over the last several years, but they sometimes fail at the most basic of tasks. When used as links, their size is too small. Pointing the mouse cursor to a target that’s just a couple of pixels in height and width can be truly frustrating. Naturally, if your target audience (no pun intended) will be using your website on mobile devices, the tap target needs to be even bigger (around 50x50px).
This can be achieved with just a little bit of CSS magic and a clever use of paddings.
