Sticky Windows 2.0 boasts new style

updated 10:50 am EDT, Fri April 6, 2007

Sticky Windows 2.0

Donelleschi Software has released Sticky Windows 2.0, a utility that extends the tab browsing experience to the desktop. Sticky Windows shrinks windows into tabs when they are dragged toward the edge of the screen, providing users with a clutter-free workspace. Tabs are created by dragging windows to any side of the screen, and removing tabs consists of dragging them away from the edge of the screen to re-display the window. The update features "Manual" and "Automatic" tab types, with file drag-and-drop support. A new style and new visual effects accompany a new code base that is more reliable and faster than previous versions. The latest release also runs natively on Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary. Sticky Windows is priced at $15 -- down from $20 -- to celebrate the new release, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.

    Shades of Mac OS 8-9

    Neither this write-up nor the site mention that a similar concept was a feature of Mac OS 8 and 9 (8 for sure, 9 I think). I loved that feature and was annoyed that it didn't get carried over to OS X. This program goes further by letting you apparently drag and window from any application. I think I'll have to check it out.

    Pop up windows

    Yes, you're referring to pop-up windows. That was the first thing I thought about, too. But it is getting a little crowded on my desktop edges, though. The Dock now takes up the bottom. XShelf takes up the left edge. The right edge is rather dynamic, depending on whether I'm using a second screen or not. I'm not sure this concept works anymore, especially now that we have Exposé.
