Say Hello to the brand new Sticky Windows
Sticky Window does not work with SnowLeopard. Sticky Window relies on a hack (code injection) which is made significantly harder (really not viable) in SnowLeopard. We have investigated other solutions but with no success. And we love Sticky Windows as much as you do, we still hope to find a workaround.
For these reason Sticky Windows has been discontinued. (until we can make it work again)
Sticky Windows is an application for Mac OS X Tiger which extends the tab browsing experience to the Desktop. Sticky Windows shrinks your windows into tabs when you drag a window towards the edge of your screen, providing you with a completely clutter-free workspace. By clicking on the tab the user can show and hide the window.
The tab can be created by dragging a window to any edge of the screen (Sticky Windows also supports multiple screens). When the mouse reaches the margin of the screen a tab will appear.
To remove a tab, simply drag it away from the screen edge. If the window is not currently visible when the tab is dismissed, the original window is re-displayed on the screen.
All users are encourage to install this new version.
This update is free for any registered user (including the 3 years old, Sticky Windows 1.0).
How does it work?
Sticky Windows keeps track of all the windows which are visualized on the Desktop, as soon as the user drag a window, and the mouse reaches the edge of the screen, Sticky Windows shows a tab corresponding to that window. Afterwards Sticky Windows "takes care" of the window and communicates to the Windows Server to show and hide it.
Is Sticky Windows CPU heavy application?
Sticky Windows has been designed to be light in CPU usage. You will seldom see it using more than 1% of your CPU. This is particular important for Powerbook/MacBook users that will be able to use it without worrying that it will drain their batteries.
