I tried out Focus follows mouse and found too many occasions when it really annoys me. Thinking about the cases when I would need focus follows mouse, I realized that it's only necessary when I'm scrolling in a non-active window.

So: Is there the possibility of having the focus switch to a window in that I scroll? Either via some setting or external application?

I find that many applications already behave this way. At least with a trackpad.

If I am working in this window, responding to your comment, and I hover over another Safari window, OR over my iTunes window, I can scroll without clicking on the other window.

My computer is not set to Focus follows mouse.

It may well be that some applications do not support this...

Do you have a specific set of apps in mind?

  • Please re-read my question: Is there the possibility of having the focus switch to a window in that I scroll? I do want to have the focus changed if I scroll in some other window. – Akku Sep 2 '11 at 8:34
  • Sorry about that... I see what you are looking for now. I don't know if you can do that. – TheWellington Sep 8 '11 at 22:28

    I'm just looking into doing that programatically now and have posted an appropriate question on stackoverflow: stackoverflow.com/questions/7316105/… – Akku Sep 9 '11 at 8:09
