What’s the point of having more screen real-estate if you can’t get your applications to place nice with widescreen formats? One of the things that drives me absolutely bonkers is Mail.app, and its inability to re-arrange my application’s panes to have my inbox list on the left, and my preview box on the right. Makes sense right?
This is where the insanely great OS X developers come in, and their commitment to making the operating system even better than it already is currently. Aaron Harnley decided to take it upon himself to code up a hack that makes this possible. It’s a productivity saver and if you spend as much time in Mail as I do, then you’re going to love him for this. Letterbox is currently in Beta for Snow Leopard, and final release for Leopard and Tiger.
Did I mention that this is why I love the Mac community?
