(Sorry for the inconvenience)

WindowLab is a small and simple window manager. It uses a window resizing mechanism that allows one or many edges of a window to be changed in one action, and an innovative menubar that shares the same part of the screen as the taskbar. It follows a click-to-focus but not raise-on-focus policy. This means that when a window is clicked it gets focus, but it is not redrawn to obscure other windows. This allows one, for example, to switch to a terminal to enter commands while keeping documentation visible in a web browser.

Figure 6.13a shows a screenshot of WindowLab running on PC-BSD 9.1. The right mouse button is pressed in order to display the top application panel. Use the left mouse button or hover over an application to open that application.
