erm.. kowalski?
Authored by: geoffliang on Feb 26, '09 08:03:04AM

name me one app in Mac that doesn't have a title bar. Well there's Stickies but the darker shade bar on top arguably is one.

and are you working on a 2 inch screen? how much space can you save with by combining the title and tab bar? 24px, that's how many. think about the inconveniences caused, and the pixels saved. consider if that's a worthy trade.

Skitch.

What inconveniences? I've been playing with it for a while now, and it works a treat - I can't find a single inconvenience other than "it's not what I'm used to". Given that, 24 pixels is well worth having on my 15 inch screen.

Can't wait for Firefox to adopt this method.

Try activating Safari when it's in the background without accidentally switching tabs. You'll need to first make sure you're not clicking on a non-active tab; you can no longer just click anywhere in the "title bar."

I consider that -- and the loss of the navigable site pop-up menu in the title bar -- to be two of the biggest issues with the current solution.

I'd much rather activate Safari when it's in the background by command-tabbing to it, or clicking on it in the dock. Besides, when Safari's in the background, I can't see it's title bar anyway. Sheesh. All you guys with gigantic screens must never maximize your windows. But I still think this should be an option. Configurability is the key to making everyone happy, and I can't understand what it would cost Apple to put a few more radio buttons in the Appearance pane of Safari prefs.
