Finding anything on your screen!
This is a great tip submitted by Rohit Deshpande: Finding anything on your screen! This is a great application to have running in the background. It lets you search for a word or a sentence in a specific window. When you hit the hotkey, the whole screen fades darker and the words will become highlighted when you start typing. It is similar to the "Command-F" Find feature, but much easier to use. What is different from the Command-F option is that it displays every occurrence of that word at the same time. It also won't scroll down by itself to show you another result. It is up to you to scroll down and see the new results (it tells you whether there are results above or below where you are). It doesn't work in all applications though. The developer says it works in applications that support the Accessibility API (it worked great in Safari but not at all in Camino). It works extremely well and if you want to get rid of it's Dock icon and the icon in the "Command-Tab" dialog, you can simply use Dock Dodger (it still works after undocking it) and make it auto launch when you log in! You can download Screen Sieve here from MacUpdate. Thanks for the great tip Rohit!
