10.3: Switch Terminal window focus with mouse movement
Authored by: Garex on Aug 12, '10 03:33:19PM

In Snow Leopard I discovered some not-so-nice effect:

Open Safari on Spaces desktop two and Terminal on number three. When you now change from Terminal.app to Safari using the Spaces hotkey function (CTRL-3, klick in Terminal window, CTRL-2), then the mouse focus will stay in Terminal.app. If you are a keyboard fanatic as I am, you will use CMD-L in Safari to enter new URL or search terms. Instead of them entered in Safari, they are entered in Terminal.app and not in Safari! Just imagine searching for "rm -rf /" and then hitting enter. :)

Therefore I disabled this feature again.

Yours,

Martin
