GoInFront brings back OS 9 window handling when you switch between applications. Clicking on any application window will bring ALL the windows and the application forward, not only the clicked window. This is the way it was under OS 9 and I still think it's correct.

What's New

Version 2.0: I made 2 new versions: GoInFront2 acts like the old GoInFront except if you hold down the shift key, only the window you click on will come forward (like OS X). GoInFront2r is the opposite. When you run it, you will notice no change to OS X unless you hold down the shift key when switching applications. When you hold down the shift key, ALL the windows will come forward. I put both applications in one .zip file.


Mac OS X 10.2 or later

In case anyone's interested, this still works even under 10.5.6. It's simple and to-the-point.

I agree about the windowshade feature, by the way.

Now all we need is a double-click "windowshade" effect added and we'll be right a home. Why this was dropped after OS 9.x elludes me? A must have feature.

Thanks for the development...

This is just what i needed for dreamweaver!! I don't like having to click on the doc icon or hitting alt+tab every time to get the windows to all come to the front. And with this little puppy i no longer have windows behind other applications windows. NICE

in a word :sucks
It takes over your mac and hardisk to the point that it renders you computer useless. Then it creates a 500mg encrypted file. what does it actually do? can't tell you. I call this type of software"Voluntary Virus" we download it intentioanlly and it screws our computers. Other than the above mention problems... it's a great program.
