Great start, can be improved
Authored by: vincentpace on Jun 06, '06 07:04:59AM

This is a great idea and it works wonderfully on my PowerBook G4 17", although I wonder how well it would fare on a smaller screen.

My big complaint is that the modification looks rough and it's out of place with the new interface as updated in Mail and iTunes. I say get rid of that divider completely and use a single line as is used between the source pane and the other panes in both Mail and iTunes. To modify the size of the panes, you'll have the three hash marks like you do in the menu bar of the source pane in iTunes.

Actually, Mail has the three marks too, at the bottom of the mailbox list, for resizing that panel. It would make sense to extend a similar bar across the bottom of the message list for resizing (maybe also use it to also display some information about the selected message(s), such as our choice of one of the things that normally appears in a column). It only uses up a little bit of space vertically, of which we now have oodles.

I have a 12" iBook G4, it works great. I posted a screenshot here.
