Regarding the comment I made below. I know that MacUpdate list this as free. But, the "More Information" link takes you to their website, that lists the 7 Euro price. Maybe it's a time limited demo, or does the developer website need updating?

I was curious as to price so I looked it up. A single user license is 7 Euros or $10.46 US dollars. Europe is 7 Euros plus VAT.

I like this very much. Sometimes I'll ask a developer about something and they'll tell me it's available via a hidden pref and to set it like so...

defaults write com.xxxx.yyyy BlaBlaBla

I don't much like black box solutions, I want to know what's there before I change it and I want to see that it's changed after I execute the command.

This lets me see what I'm doing or about to do and lets me see that it's been done.

My ratings reflect the fact that it's new to me and I don't know what other features could be offered and I don't know how stable it is yet.

WARNING: If you edit, add, or delete preference values of application programs or the OS X operating system, you should know what you are doing. Inappropriate values can cause serious malfunctions in the system, which could destroy important data or create other unexpected effects.
