    Excellent this will be very handy for me.

    Works a treat on XP, haven't had the chance to test it on vista yet.

    Pff give me a break, how is that any more amazing than just pressing the 'maximise' button? In fact it's actually more effort!

    Double clicking the Title bar does the trick too...

    It looks like one of those "cool" things that you will never use... like that 3d window shuffling thing in vista - who honestly uses that over alt tab? I think we should label this stuff crapware lol...

    Its very handy if you regularly want to for example have half of the screen for your browser and the remaining half as msn convo's. This apps purely saves time resizing windows accordingly. Then when you drag them away they resize back to normal size

    Gnome & Compiz does it very well.

    Been using it for some time in Ubuntu now.

    Say I have a window maximised on one monitor. I can click and drag it - it becomes a non-maximised window - then drag it onto my other monitor, where I can either leave it as a window, or drag it towards the top where it will "snap" back into maximised mode.

    One click, one drag... and my god I notice how XP can't do it whenever I have to use it.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Steve, Ultramon does that, i've been using it on and off for about 5 years now, it bugs the hell out of me because i don't have it on one of my work PCs, but do on the other should just buy another license.

    Re: News - AeroSnap brings Windows 7 functionality to Vista

    The question is if I collect and use all these utilities on my Vista box will that save me the cost of upgrading to Win7?

    (Just in case you missed it thats a joke - Win7 looks like Vista with a new GUI)
