So if working on two different applications, lets say you have a browser open and word document, is there a way to automatically resize them so they both take up half the screen. I now using expose you can get a preview of all windows which is pretty good, but id like it so i can continue to work on my documents or browser like that.

Hope that is clear and makes sense!:)

I love the Aero Snap in Windows 7, such a minor feature but makes incredible impact on the workflow and utilizes the potential of widescreen displays.

In Mac, there is TwoUp (freeware) and SizeUp (paid, more features). They are not as intuitive and convenient as Aero Snap but does the same thing.
