Yeah, I tend to use this like a feature a LOT. Keeps secondary things in the side area and focus them when they need attention. They come up at a useful size and then go back to the side when I'm done.
In fact, terminal is the only thing I use regularly that DOESN'T act this way. It actually resizes like it's told to. :-)
Okay, gotta run to an appointment, but thanks for your awesome work!
