Use a transparent tab in Safari 1.3 to see other windows
Authored by: inemo on Apr 19, '05 10:31:58AM

The threshold of opacity before a window becomes clickable is 5%. 5% or more opacity and the window is clickable. Less than 5% (Safari is set to 0% in this case) and the window becomes "invisible" to the UI, and is thus clickthroughable.

I stumbled across the threshold when playing around with a program that put the currently playing track in a customizable window. I wanted the window to be clickable to activate, but just wanted it as black text against my menubar. I thus had to set the opacity of the background to 5%.
