I'm sure I used to have an application installed that would fade all windows except the one I was working on. Did I imagine this? I've Googled for it a few times and can't find it for OS X (I can find plenty for Windows)

The inactive windows would still display, just darker so the active one really stood out. If anyone knows of such an application that would be very useful!
