    Is there a way to "grab" and move a window without having to move the cursor to the borders? On linux you can hold down "alt" then click anywhere on a window and the cursor becomes a "hand" so you can grab and move a window around. It makes it easier especially on a laptop so you don't have to move the cursor up to the border.

    Using Snow Leopard btw

    I haven't seen anything like this, it'd be a nice feature though. :)

    You can move windows between spaces this way, when you are in the 'bird's eye view' configuration.

    ...or down to the "border". It only works at the top or bottom.

    there was something called 'Stoplight' (not Spotlight) that's you change the behavior of cocoa base apps like maximize windows, quit on close. it didn't work perfectly and I took it off my machine before i installed snow leopard.
