I only use BetterTouchTool to resize my windows but I use it for that a gazillion times a day. Works great for me, been using it for years now. Works fine on Catalina. I'd be lost without it. Eventually I'll branch out and see what else little app can do.

There are only two things that are certain in life: 1) The sun will rise tomorrow. 2) There will be a new release of BTT tomorrow. ;) Seriously, this is an amazing program.

Does not work for me anymore, makes my Wacom super sluggish and has peaks of memory usage for no apparent reason (that are monitored by AppTamer). All I had set up were keyboard shortcuts. I won't rate it bad because it worked fine until he finally stopped updating daily... Oddly enough that is when it started acting up.

Spins Kernal process up to 1200%, crashes your machine, unstable, rendering not antialiased, drains battery. latest version of bettertouch & OSX as at 12/2019, it's not that they won't (eventually?) fix these problems but that with the next (non-alpha) update, they could come back again > Massive net productivity reduction Fantastic Idea, dismal implementation.

(from OSXDaily.com) The Green Button in OS X window bars used to “maximize” windows to fit the Mac screen, but since OS X Yosemite the Green Button now sends windows or apps into full screen mode by default. This can be modified one-off by Option+Clicking the green maximize button, but a better solution for some users is to permanently modify the behavior of this button to work like it used to instead. To change the green button maximize behavior you will need to use BetterTouchTool, a free application for OS X that performs many other functions and neat tricks with the Mac trackpad and mouse, but for the purposes here we’re just using it to adjust window maximizing universally throughout OS X. http://osxdaily.com/2015/03/11/change-the-green-button-maximize-behavior-in-os-x-yosemite-with-bettertouchtool/

If you have a new fangled Macbook with the touchbar and you're a power user, you owe it to yourself to use BTT. I make shortcuts for my most used commands which may have otherwise been buried in a submenu or have a hot key combination that I never remember.
