Whenever I switch to and from fullscreen mode, OS X Lion and Mountain Lion does a slow, flashy and totally pointless (imo) animation that delays the whole process. This happens also when using QuickTime and changing the view of the movie you are watching to fullscreen. The OS slides the desktop out and slowly scales the window to the size of the screen. If you are doing some quick edits to several photos in Pixelmator, for example, and you like switching to fullscreen mode for easier editing and to gain screen realstate, the constant animation transition of going to and from fullscreen becomes tedious and timeconsuming, slowing down your workflow. I use the Pixelmator case as an example, but it is the same thing with very much any other program. Is there a way to disable this or at least speed it up considerably? Thanks!
