HazeOver is an app that let's you spend less time caring about all the open windows you have.
It dims all the background windows to let you focus on the app you're actually working with. Here's a short demo on YouTube that I've made:


Available on the Mac App store:

App website with screenshots and tips:

I have a 15" rMBP and I usually have tons of open windows. I've created the app to help me deal with that mess. I've added a quick poll to find out what's your silver bullet for this. :D

it is nice app.
In case I wanted to transfer or copy files between two hard drives, it shows me which finder window is active.
I liked the slider where I can choose the darkness of the background.

I would say, well done.

Thanks a lot.

HazeOver 1.5: Distraction Dimmer

Say hello to the fun new "Dimmer" design! Use trackpad rotation gesture to literally turn the brightness of your distractions down. Or place mouse pointer over HzO menu bar icon and scroll to quickly adjust dimming intensity.



Now you can choose how you want to dim multiple displays. You can either highlight one screen only or have a highlighted window on each screen.

Are you ready? Aye, Aye, El Capitan! HazeOver support is on board.
