What do you mean? If you have Notepad on the left side and Chrome on the right side, you just use the mouse, right?

    When you’re a heavy coder you need both notepad and the browser + element inspector opened. I couldn’t work with alt+tab, not seeing my code and the browser at the same time..

    I tried multiple times to use more than one monitor but eventually realized that’s not my thing. So far, the faster and more comfy way to work for me is to just have a bunch of keys remapped:

    F1 = switch to editor
    F2 = switch to browser + reload page

    I just use a 15” laptop. It’s pretty meaty though… quad core i7, up to 3.4Ghz, 16Gb of RAM, 2GB VRAM. Does the job! When time and funds allow, I’ll get a decent desktop setup with a fancy monitor or two though. Something 2K and/or one of those sexy curved displays would be nice.

    1 Computer + 1 Monitor (an iMac) + Spaces

    By utilizing Spaces in Mountain Lion, (a) I have no personal need for multiple monitors and (b) by running individual apps on separate desktops it allows me to focus on one thing at a time and get things done quickly. Multitasking, for the most part, is overrated in my opinion. I can get more things done and get them done more quickly by truly focusing on one thing at a time.

    alt+tab and ctrl+r (or f5) are waaaay faster than the mouse. it’s even faster than the eye.

    well, ok, I can understand that. but then the most useful thing would be binding chrome refresh with a custom key, since you must focus on the window ur working on. I’m forcing the refresh here to be faster because it’s the only thing that can be accelerated and (at least for me) the most used thing. It would be even faster if the changes were live.

    How do you bind it? (win)
