    Supports Windows 7 like snapping!
    Just doesn't do it as cool though. But still functional.
    Slide that Safari window to the side and *pow*!
    ahahah
    Thoughts on it?

    I haven't experimented with the other new additions yet, but I love that one.

    I downloaded the app and installed it. Yet i have not found a way to make it "snap" even though it is enabled.

    The new ability on 'hiding menu bar temporarily' sounds interesting.... i'm using BTT mainly for adding full touch gestures for Opera - works great.

    Updating now....

    Coops

    hmmm. the window snapping works ok... the temporary hide of menu bar just 'hides' the options and greys out the hie/minimize/max buttons - was hoping it would move the menu bar off screen in autohide mode and expand the app to fill full screen height. Ah, well.

    Yah it isn't as great as it could be. I have been waiting for the dongle
    to come in the mail for my MB to hook to my 23" 1080p monitor.
    Am I a geek because I am looking forward to dividing my screen equally
    with browser windows?

    ahahaha
    : )
    Anyone else grabbed the update?

    I have been doing the Windows snapping a different way in BTT and like it much better than the way Windows 7 does it. I use a 3 finger swipe left or right to pop the windows to the sides, this can be set up to use different percentages and not just 50/50. I use a 60% 40% screen, Safari 60% and several things that will pop into the 40% as I need them.

    YES! That is awesome. I didn't even think of binding it like that.
    That is pretty nice. : )

    When I discovered this a month or so ago I liked it much better than the Windows 7 way. So I use it all the time, it makes it so easy to pop things from side to side. I find I use it more than Expose' anymore.

    I've been using this too but I didn't know you could define your own percentages. How do you do that???

    I'm not on my Mac right now, but I remember it being under the tab where you setup the normal Windows Snapping. Near the bottom you can set up the percentage. Once you have it setup like you want close out of the Windows Snapping tab and deselect it, the percent will still hold.
