This is a fine little app - icon notwithstanding! Two thngs I'd like to see:

i) some kind of 'always on top' feature - I was trying to check the 'current selection' highlight colour in Mail, and the only way to do this with Pygmy is to take a screen shot and then look at that in Pygmy, because once Pygmy has the focus (to reveal its info bar) the Mail window loses focus and loses its highlight colour!

ii) option to have the info bar vertical instead of horizontal would be nice too...

There also seems to be some conflict between this app and PDFView CMM (multiple selected PDFs don't view if Pygmy is running), but that could be the other app, or an OSX bug.
