MenuAndDockless


MenuAndDockless is a SIMBL plugin for OS X Lion (and Mountain Lion) enabling you to choose for every native Cocoa application wether it should show the Menu bar and the Dock or not. In addition you can save the default window size and position (in the latest version this will also work for multiple display setups), automatically adjust window sizes or center and arrange windows and toggle a fullscreen mode (in the latest version MAD can even fake the new OS X Lion Fullscreen Feature for yet unsupported Apps) individually for each application by customizable shortcuts or menu items.

On smaller screens (on an 11” MacBook Air for example) this often makes much sense because you gain a lot of more free ‘space’ and it reduces possible distractions and you don’t have to manually position windows all over again - one keystroke or click and the window will be adjusted and positioned to the frame you always want it to have…

And because under Snow Leopard the Finder is also written in Cocoa MenuAndDockless even works for the Finder (just needs to be restarted once).

MenuAndDockless is free and works on every Mac running Lion and above in  64 bit mode and is not rally a hack like other tools - it’s just an addition and will not cause any trouble…

NEW FEATURE: ENABLE LION FULLSCREEN MODE FOR YET UNSUPPORTED APPS LIKE TWITTER, RAPIDWEAVER, TEXTMATE AND CO…

NEW FEATURE: MAD CAN NOW SAVE/RESTORE WINDOW FRAMES (POSITIONS) ON MULTIPLE DISPLAY SETUPS > THUS THE ANNOYING REORGANIZING OF WINDOWS WHEN YOU ATTACH A SECON DISPLAY OR WORK WITHOUT THE SECOND DISPLAY AT HOME ETC. IS FINALLY OVER…
