helloSystem: Pre-alpha FreeBSD project chases simplicity and elegance by taking cues from macOS

That's a good point. Because MacOS only supports "click to focus" (sigh), I just have to get used to that, sadly (unless there's any third-party software out there?).

But when I'm using Linux and go through one of my occasional "let's try a different window manager" moods, and am trying one with a screen edge menu, "sloppy focus" works as a reasonable compromise for this: you are given just enough time to skite from the window to the menu before the mouse focus decides to focus on any of the other windows en route.
