Make the green button maximize the iTunes 9.0.1 window
Authored by: MartiNZ on Sep 24, '09 01:02:24PM

IMO it is actually one of the better and more appropriate uses of the green widget, which should switch between different useful view modes. Most of the time it absolutely fails as a useful zoom window function – in TextEdit and Word it doesn't adjust width for anything other than 100% zoom in the document itself; in most other applications it is simply a maximise rather than 'fit to content', which I note now finally works in Finder, although it should really get a clue about Cover Flow mode, where a small window is pretty useless.

Calculator is another fine example of green switching between different functional view modes; basic, scientific, programmer. Maximising the window is a poor function by comparison, and centring it on the screen à la iTunes 9.0 is pretty laughable. Glad they reverted this behaviour :).
