Make OS 9 Look More Like OS X

Greg Landweber has updated the nifty interface enhancement, Power Windows, to version 2.4.5. Power Windows adds a number of features to the Finder, such as opaque window dragging and translucent menus. Used with OS X and the Classic environment, Classic apps take on more of an OS X feel. According to Mr. Landweber:

Power Windows is a small control panel that taps into your Macis unusedprocessor power to perform amazingly cool effects with windows and menus.Power Windows was originally conceived to let you drag the entire contentsof windows instead of just a dotted outline. It offers both solid andtranslucent window dragging, and you can even enable multitasking with soliddragging. Power Windows also has options for fading Finder windows (in placeof the zoom rectangle animation), fading menus, and as of version 2.4,transparent menus!

Version 2.4.5 is a maintenance release, addressing glitches with transparentmenus in Appearance themes and in Kaleidoscope schemes without built-intransparency. It also fixes a conflict between PopChar Pro and transparentwindow dragging.

PowerWindows is available for US$10. You can find more information at Mr. Landweberis Web site.
