The year is almost over, so let me end it with recommending two OS X apps for all the mac users out there.
Windowshade X lets you…
>> Minimize the window to the Dock, like always
>> “Windowshade” the window into a tiny strip to quickly peek below or get it out of the way
>> Minimize-In-Place the window so it becomes really small so you can move it out of the way yet still see what is going on
>> Make the window transparent so you can continue working in it while seeing things under it
>> Hide the application quickly
With QuickSilver you can search for and open anything on the computer without using the mouse. Quicksilver will recognize which items you are searching for based on previous experience and it supports abbreviations, so you can type entire words, or just fragments of each. Quicksilver vanishes when not in use and waits for the next time you summon it .
In the new AG site, I will have a new section where I will keep a list of recommended apps.
Happy New Years.
