Resizing Windows in Lion

Hover your cursor over any window edge or corner to resize the window.

Apple finally gave us the ability to resize windows from any edge or corner. For years, I've wished Apple would copy Windows on that feature; resizing only from the bottom right corner is so last century. It's one of the few things — possibly the only thing — that I think Windows does better than Mac.

With Lion, we finally get that ability. Now, you can grab any edge or any corner of a window and resize the window by dragging that edge or corner.

And it gets even better! You can resize two opposing edges or opposing corners simultaneously by simply option-dragging! Watch the video to see it in action:

Pretty cool, huh? Apple took long enough to bring us this ability, but when they finally did, they did it even better than Windows does.
