WindowShade X for Mac

By Unsanity Free to try

Developer's Description

WindowShade X is a haxie that brings WindowShade functionality into Mac OS X. When you double-click a window title or try to minimize a window, it will do action which can be different from the default Mac OS X behavior (putting the window in the Dock). WindowShade X has 5 alternative minimize styles: WindowShade, Minimize-In-Place, Make Window Transparent, Float on Top, Hide Application, and Do Nothing.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 5.0.7

  • You may have to restart after installing WSX for the first time.
  • Addresses many parent-child relationship problems.
  • If a window is minimized (collapsed) and it suddenly gets a child window, the window will expand automatically. For example, collapse Safari then press Command L (to go to the location bar). Safari will expand itself.
  • No longer attempts to make a child float on top.
  • Lots of other parent-child relationship fixes.
  • Removed some spurious logging errors when EyeTV's setup assistant was closed.
