Application Focus Amock
Written 12 Aug 2009
Applications that steal focus are the bane of my computer experience. Particularly egregious are the ‘sudo’ type authentication dialogs on the OS X platform. On a multi-monitor setup ( which I have at work ) these dialogs remove the focus to a place where one is not looking. It is too easy to continue type and depress the enter key, thereby submitting an incorrect password.
Stealing focus should be prevented and preventable. <div class="zemanta-pixie"></div>
