Often I find myself tabbing between windows as I unfortunately don't have a 20" LCD. I think it would be a great feature to have an "always on top" flag that can be set in conjunction with a transparent slider in the toolbar. this would allow me to layer windows and still work in a development environment while having my reference overlayed, yet not the focused window. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Transparent slider toolbar should be a checkable option in the View --> Toolbars menu 2. The "always on top" could also be on the transparent slider toolbar, as well as in the General section of the Options menu. 3. I must admit this idea was inspired by the layering feature demoed by Sun in a recent R&D presentation of a 3D desktop. Thanks for the great product!
I often use an integrated chat client named Trillian that has a transparent feature, as well as the always on top. I've found it usefull when working in a development environemnt and chatting with co-workers.
Reporter, if you have an Nvidia or ATI display card, you may be able to use their included utilities to make any window transparent (Nview for Nvidia, HydraVision for ATI).
transparency isn't really something that we're ever going to do. Always on top was WONTFIXed a while back. http://texturizer.net/firefox/extensions/#windowlayers does this though, its windows-only. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 227592 ***
