I have just discovered this app, which comes from an Italian developer (sometimes we are good at something) who built it in 2008. This app allows you to have windows "always on top", to drag windows in any point (not only from the upper bar, to resize windows with a easy keys combination, to make windows transparent, and so on...

Here's a screenshot:

You need to install SIMBL first (Afloat is a SIMBL plugin) and then Afloat.

It is a LEOPARD ONLY app.

Interesting! I don't know what I'd use it for, but it's interesting! ;)

I'd love to try it but I'm 90% through the Tiger transition so I'll have to wait until I have some Macs that can dual-boot (everything's Tiger only right now).
