Afloat is a Cocoa plug-in that adds "Keep Floating" (always-on-top) and "Make Transparent" commands for all windows in all Cocoa applications.

Apparently if you use 1.0b3, ctrl-click, click "Show Package Contents," and drag "Afloat.bundle" to your SIMBL directory (/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/), you will be able to use Afloat on Leopard. Make sure you have the latest version of SIMBL. For some reason, it doesn't seem to be working for me.

I don't actually use Afloat for the transparency or window float features. The Ctrl+Command+click dragging of Cocoa windows is something that I can't live without anymore.

nice and handy, thanks

Unfortunately it does not work with DVD Player on my system (10.4.9).

Totally love it!

Very nice! It's particularly handy for keeping an eye on your video player while doing actual work--set it to keep afloat, make it transparent, and get on with what you're doing. You can roll your mouse over it to turn opaque without disturbing keyboard focus as well. Also great for keeping an eye on IM windows!

Link is broken??
Where is it??
would like it if someone host it some where else!

Just to let you know that this app is broken by the 10.4.8 update.

You may find the following alias breaks (clicking on it brings up a broken alias message):
'~/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/Afloat.bundle alias'

in which case go here:

and create a new symlink or alias for that bundle and place that in ~/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/

Afloat should now work again


Great app.

Icon? Did it with the new version :)
