Megazoomer: Full-screen mode for Cocoa apps

ianhenderson.org - megazoomer

Speaking of full-screen functionality, lots of people have been writing to mention Megazoomer, a free, SIMBL-based bundle that fakes full-screen mode within any Cocoa app, including Safari and Textmate.

Megazoomer makes windows full-screen. Just press Command-Enter, and the front-most window grows to fill your entire monitor. Press the same keys, and it shrinks again.

It should be great to have this in Textmate, whose functional depth you lose working in an app like WriteRoom. Haven't had time to play with Megazoomer much yet, but it certainly looks promising.

[ thanks to lots of people for sending this one ]

As was pointed out on...

As was pointed out on the MacUpdate comments for megazoomer, the current version of megazoomer (.3) disables VLC's full screen mode. Also, anecdotally, I started to experience instability and unexpected crashes in Mail after installing megazoomer, which went away when I uninstalled megazoomer (i.e. removed it from the SIMBL plugins folder); this could've been a conflict with something else on my system, though. Couldn't spare the time to test & troubleshooot.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
