X-Assist for Mac

By Ortabe Free

Developer's Description

This simple application brings back useful features like OS 9 windowing mechanism back to OS X (where all windows are switched back when a window is clicked on, instead of just the window being clicked on, like in OS X). It also has support for an Application Menu, customizable user defined menus (like in Apple Menu), and a plugin mechanism to support 3rd party plugins (MP3 player and Volume control plugins included).
