Mercury Mover 1.1 update
Helium Foot Software today unveiled MercuryMover 1.1, an update to its keyboard-based window modification software, bringing with it customizable hot keys, and several other new features. Users can now move and resize windows using configurable hot keys, which can be set to move windows in increments of 10 or 100 pixels. New users can purchase MercuryMover 1.1 for $25, which is available from Helium Foot Software's website.
Also new in this version are undo and redo keys, as well as using the 'plus' and 'equals' key to control maximize and center window functions, respectively. Users will experience Core Animation effects in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, which the author describes as a pleasant fade-in, fade-out effect.
MercuryMover 1.1 also coincides with the start of a philanthropic project Helium Foot is undertaking. When users by a Helium Foot software product, they have the option of donating up to $4 to the National Cancer Coalition, which will be matched in full by the company.
