Window Manipulation Made Easy

On my high resolution 24" Dell display, the width of the window edges that you need to grab in order to resize is tiny, when measured in physical mouse movement.

So, a big thankyou to Life Hacker for pointing me to WinMover.

This Windows application allows you to move and resize windows easily, by pressing the Alt key and dragging with the right mouse button pressed, anywhere within it. Watch the video to see what I mean ...

Now, if someone can just provide me with an equivalent for the Mac ... the ridiculous idea that window resizing should only be possible from one corner is one of the very few things I think Apple got completely wrong.
