Does anyone know a way to keep window on top in OSX? I've tried Afloat and works with about 15% of the apps out there. I know that you can snap windows to different corners but I often need to be able to keep one window (IM for instance) atop of another. I can't believe there isn't "pin window" functionality in OSX, natively or third-party. Thanks!

Which version of afloat did you use? It seems that if you first install SIMBL 0.9.9 and then AFloat it should work well in Mavericks. There is no native way to do this and as far as I know AFloat is the only software enabling this tweak. –  Jozef Legény Feb 13 '14 at 14:39
Thanks Josef! I've tried the latest Afloat, or rather the one that was modified to work on Mavericks. Sadly, it only covers a small number of apps; most IM apps are not covered, and neither are Office apps. That's too bad that no one came up with a way to do it, I guess I'll keep looking.. –  user299840 Feb 13 '14 at 14:45
