Clever, IMO, and beautifully implemented.



It may or may not be a solution to the tabbed / multipage browsing debate, but it sure is interesting to try out.

    After you've booted Pith, which runs as a background process, click the Pith menulet (the little globe/compass) to show the utility window with open pages. It only appears when in Safari.

    I think it could only be usefull if it made a single window element much like making 3 of the 4 windows invisible until swapped to.



    That and the Globe Menu Item is VERY buggy.

    It is. The author seems to be working on that.

    It's called user friendliness. Less crap to deal with, the thing should (in theory) know how to handle that stuff, right? It's the iMovie of browsers, not the Final Cut Pro of web browsers. I don't want Apple to make it big and complicated like IE or especially Mozilla.

    remindes me of the OS 9 application switcher



    i still think tabs are better suited to the job of opening multiple pages at once

    The downside of Pith is it totally disappears if you go to the finder
