Green button poll
Authored by: MJCube on Mar 13, '09 12:35:12PM
For me zooming to show all content is more often useful. (Before the Finder did that starting in System 7, I used to obsessively resize Finder windows by hand to fit the exact icon layout. Every pixel counted in 512x342.) But zooming to full screen is also needed sometimes. I think I recall Option-click on the zoom button doing that in some app in Classic MacOS. Now for Preview and music apps particularly I have macros to manually zoom to full screen with mouse drags.

I would like to see the behavior of the green button standardized to zoom full screen with Option-click. I think it's very hard for developers to predict when a user might find it useful.

Bizarrely, in Safari 4 beta, I find that Option-click on the green button currently zooms the window behind the one you click!
