It would probably be useful for many to know how much PC power (resources) are being used by the different programs, WHILE LOOKING AT THEM.
This is much better than opening the task manager. Instead you can choose to show on each window titlebar (the top blue part) an icon showing if this program
is now taking a lot of CPU, memory, IO, or internet bandwidth.
That way you quickly understand when some website you opened suddenly catches the CPU, on an advertisement that you don't realy care for, or when a certain Excel sheet you opened starts eating away memory, because it has too many lookup fields.
||Good idea. It would be nice if you could also control the resources the program is using from the title bar.
||It's funny how often I read ideas in the Computer section and think, "What? My computer already does that."
||I agree with the idea, but i can imagine that very feature needlessly gobbling up resources, as usually seems to be the case.
