I recently started using Vimium to not use the mouse that often. Now I find it disturbing when I always see the mouse cursor within Chrome.

So I want it to disappear from screen when I am not using the mouse. How can I achieve that?

Have you tried requesting the feature from the devs? The should be able to add a function-call to remove it, but you will need to allow that to happen since by default, Chrome prompts you: chrome://chrome/settings/contentExceptions#mouselock – Synetech Sep 5 '12 at 18:37

One solution is to override the user stylesheet. You can use an extension like UserScrtipCSS and set a rule of body { cursor: none !important; } to match against a regex of .*.

This will obviously remove the mouse cursor completely from every page - which may or may not be what you want.
