I’ve tried so many times to use Spaces, and I keep failing. As useful as it should be, it just never was. And I’ve finally realized why. Most of what I do is in a web browser. And spaces just wasn’t made for that. I want Gmail to always be in space 3. Facebook on 4. It just wasn’t meant for that.
I’ve recently discovered Fluid. Fluid brings creates Site Specific Browsers. This means I have an actual application that I launch called Gmail. It’s independent from everything else, doesn’t crash when Safari does (which, to be honest, is all the time). I can assign it to a space. So good.
Also, I’ve discovered hitting F9 (expose) after triggering F8 for spaces, it’ll do expose over all the spaces. Pretty cool way to organize.
