This question already has an answer here:

On Windows 8, I type win + left and the current window becomes full-height and half the screen width and moves to the left. If I type win + right, the current window does the same except moves to the right.

This is so incredibly helpful. Is there a mechanism to do the same for Macs?

You can try Cinch and SizeUp apps to do that.

This looks perfect. Is there a free alternative? – at01 Mar 30 '13 at 18:40
    
I do not know any free apps, but the app DoublePane cost $4.99. It's same as Cinch or BetterSnapTool at just $1.99. itunes.apple.com/us/app/bettersnaptool/id417375580?mt=12 5amcode.com – Pratika Rana Apr 1 '13 at 10:02
    
I ended up with Spectacle, seems to work perfect and is free. – at01 Apr 1 '13 at 14:41
