Afloat is a small extender that adds both useful window management commands and a little eye candy to most Mac applications. It adds always-on-top, transparency, Spaces window management and more.

What's New

Version 2.4:
  • Afloat is now fully compatible with OS X 10.7, including full compatibility with sandboxed apps.
  • Fixed several bugs that involved Afloat only dragging away, floating or making transparent only a part of the window. Afloat can now be disabled on a per-app basis using the Terminal.

For more information on this release, see more...

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.6 or later

I would avoid this plugin unless you're running something prior to Mavericks for sure. It's causing crashes these days.

Actually, it work fine on Mavericks for the applications I really need to be afloat, such as TextEdit, Preview and the Calculator.

A very useful application that is craving for an update. Sadly, the developer does not check her emails.

A great tool. It still works in many (but not all) apps on Mountain Lion. I've been using it for a few years. Very handy.

I should point out that the developer recently took down the link. Searching for another source. It's still on GitHub.

A great and very useful application, but not quite compatible with Mountain lion. My macbook froze a few times and I tracked the problem back to Afloat, uninstalled it and now computer is working again smoothly. I would love to see and update to this and would gradly pay for it.

Happy to see this still working in Mountain Lion (using EasySIMBL). Read the documentation for tips like holding Ctrl+Cmd to easily move/resize windows with the mouse and change opacity via scroll wheel. Main limitation is that it only works with Cocoa apps.

I've had this downloaded for some time. I just installed it on Mountain Lion and it works perfectly. Very cool addition if you like the ability to make windows float on top, or become semi-transparent. It works like a dream on every app I've tried it on. Great job Infinite Labs :)

I don't use the overlay feature much (it's main feature), but I LOVE the ability to click-n-drag a window from anywhere and the ability to resize a window from anywhere. I use those features constantly.

Tried using with Lion 10.7. Every time I reboot or shut down, everything disappears. App is gone. Tried emailing but never got an answer. Anybody else have this problem?

Nevermind, had an old version 2.2. With 2.4 all old apps that used to work now afloat again! It does indeed work. 10.7.3 with simbl 0.9.9
