CNET Editors' review
Mac users are constantly trying to find ways to operate their systems using the least number of keystrokes or clicks. Sunlight for Mac does allow a different method for showing and hiding windows, but ultimately saves few steps and will not appeal to most users.
After a quick download, the installation of Sunlight for Mac took place quickly, despite the atypical location for the installer program. Technical support and user instruction were both unavailable. Despite the simple nature of the program, the lack of tutorial requires the user to play with the interface to learn how to use it, which is a disappointment. The basic menu has three unlabeled icons. The icons are a full sun, partial sun, and moon. After playing with each button, clicking the sun brings up the application's window. The partial sun and moon are for showing and hiding windows, respectively. No matter the number of windows, clicking the moon button minimizes them and makes them disappear from the dock area. The partial sun button brings them back. Despite having no other purpose, the program does work well, although most users will likely find it saves no real time over the traditional method for closing and minimizing windows.
While functional, Sunlight for Mac fails to provide enough efficiency gains to recommend its use to most Mac owners.
Sunlight allows you to hide and unhide applications easily without a trackpad. Now with Sunlight 3 we've added better graphics, more features, bug fixes, and its still free. Download it now on Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, and Mountain Lion.
