X11-style mouse window manipulations for Mac OS X

In short, I finally found a way to manipulate windows under Mac OS X like you can in X11:

  • ALT+left mouse button: move window around
  • ALT+right mouse button: resize window

Well, NuclearMouse (a SIMBL plugin) makes it happen!

  1. I’ll give this a try!
    Found it by pure chance, being looking for something like this for ages, I really don’t understand how such a “graphic enhanced”, “windowed”, etc OS like Os X doesn’t have this available as a default…

    I posted about it too:

    Will install it tomorrow to test it, thanks.
