    With Windows, you can have the OS automatically tile windows either horizontally or vertically. Is there a way to do this in Panther? :confused:

    You don't really need to tile windows in Panther because of Exposé. I found this program on VersionTracker, but I think it's only for Finder windows.

    Expose is very nice but it doesn't <necessarily> obviate the need for tiling. For example, if you're using a 20"+ display and you'd like to tile two browser windows side by side, Expose isn't going to help you do it and, as far as I know, you're forced to do it manually. Given Expose's powerful windowing management features, it would seem trivial to add in a tiling feature. :mad:

    It wouls be trivial for sure. FWIW, some apps on OS X do in fact have tiling and cascading... macromedia fireworks for example, and some others. It would be nice if the OS did for every app though.

    It would be a decent feature to add for sure if it is what i think it is but can't you just do that with the corner grab thingy

    Not quite the same having to manually resize and position windows, that takes to much time.
