    Occasionally I want to make a window full screen, not just zoomed, but in the process I have to manually drag the window (via the bottom right handle). I am not asking "why doesn't the green button do full screen1?!?!?!?11"

    Is there a setting somewhere to have it auto 'snap' to the left side of the screen? It's kinda annoying to have to precisely place the window such that the left window extent lines up exactly with the left of my physical screen. It would seem there should be a "snap" function somewhere.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    I personally don't see much point to HyperDock. You can get the same effect by pressing F3 and then tabbing through each application's windows. Remember, Apple had this idea first before Microsoft imitated it so it seems somewhat ironic at least that you would want to rely on an imitation as the standard. I'll admit that I do like the Snap Left and Snap Right feature of Windows, but I think Apple could deliver something much better than that: How about smart cascading?
