Hi guys.

There is one thing I miss after moving from my Windows 7. See, when you hold mouse button on the Title bar (Internet browser let's say) and drag it to left or right side and release, it will automaticaly fit to that side and keep my screen tidy and leave enough space to do another thing in the same time.

Is there something similiar for OS X?

You can choose to hit the sides and have it cover half the screen, hit the top and you get full screen (but still windowed as opposed to Lion's full screen applications), hit the corners and it takes up a quarter of the screen.

I think there's more options but that's all I needed from it.

Thanks for the info - just downloaded this and it's brilliant :)
