Tame Mac OS X's green Zoom button.

Overview

GreenOrbmax provides a quick and easy solution for a common woe in Mac OS X - the green 'zoom' button's inconsistent behavior. It enables you to make the green button maximize to full screen when you click the green round button. The program is a lightweight application and runs without a graphical interface.

Not necessary. Windows open to the size they are supposed to be according to content. So if there is too much in the window for one screen it will already open to full size. More importantly, however... this app doesn't work in Lion on my MacBook Pro.

"According to content" results in inconsistent behavior, and more important: i expect the maximize behavior. It works for me on my MacBook Pro with Lion.

The OS is gradually adding actual full-screen mode, rather than "not quite full screen, but big" - which is what this does. The green button used to work consistently in Mac OS (classic) - it was the "make the window just big enough for everything to fit" button. Sadly, that feature is even MORE useful now that people have huge screens. If the content only uses 600x800 pixels, and you have a 24 inch screen, why make the window use almost the whole screen? Looks bizarre. I agree with another commenter here - "Why?" But, I the answer is that there are people coming from Windows who are used to full-screen-mode, and this will help them get close to that for apps that don't use Lion's new true full screen mode. So, good luck!

I have seen so many people (especially older) get completely lost since the adoption of the green button to maximize the window. This helps to solve that, thanks to developer.
