Makes for good reading 4 stars by gimpguy Aug 09, 2011 (Read all my 1159 reviews)
I wasn't sure what to expect from this at first but as I write this review, I have my focus on the window and not all around it, also, as stated in the other review, watching videos with this enabled is great. I also wondered if you shrunk it enough, would it be difficult to get back, the answer is no. It would not go off the screen completely, even as a sliver you could not see until moused over, plus you could easily drag from the corner and enlarge the window. (Not a good idea to shrink the window that small anyway but just to try it) It also has custom click settings to choose your favorite focus area. This is actually very nice, something I could get used to having. I gave it a 4 as I feel it could use some features to make it even better, perhaps shape select for windows, opacity of viewing area itself, to lighten or darken it, snap shot of viewing window, framed windows,things of that nature. But yes, this is definitely a keeper. show Review details
Elegant simplicity 5 stars by Harry_Q_Hammer Jan 11, 2011 (Read all my 3 reviews)
I spend a lot of time watching videos on youtube and the like, as well as reading online comic strips. As is frequently the case with these and many other sites, there are intrusive flashing advertising banners or bright areas of the page that continually draw my eye away from what I am viewing. CinemaDrape to the rescue! It is called up with a single mouse click or keyboard shortcut. The darkened area (drape) surrounding the viewing box can be easily dragged to any size and quickly assigned to one of 9 user presets for quick recall in the future. The drape can be set to any level of partial opaqueness or be completely opaque, and assigned any shade of colour. The program is very system friendly, occupying less than 10MB memory and only using CPU cycles when it is being recalled or manually resized. It is a wonderfully simple yet effective gadget that can enhance your viewing experience. Well done to the developer! show Review details
