Window-management utilities for the Mac

As much as I like Mac OS X, I often wish it offered more options for moving and resizing onscreen windows. I hear similar comments from other Mac users—including those who’ve switched to the Mac from Windows and are used to The Other Way of working with windows.

Two utilities—both Mac Gems—that enhance OS X’s window-management features are MondoMouse and MercuryMover. In this week’s video, I show you the best features of each and why they’ve become part of my everyday workflow.
