10.3: Switch Terminal window focus with mouse movement
Authored by: ashill on Oct 31, '03 03:51:38PM

One advantage of focus follows mouse in the Terminal (and X11) is that the window with focus does not come to the foreground, so if I'm entering commands in a terminal that I don't need to see much of but one to refer to another terminal, that one stays on top, even though it's in the 'background.' To bring the window to the top, click in it.

(cmd-` is the shortcut to rotate through windows in most applications. cmd-left arrow and cmd-right arrow also work in Terminal.)
