New (freeware, donations accepted) utility from Rainer Brockerhoff that disables click-through system-wide. Lets you enable click-through by holding any modifier key while you click, and lets you configure an exception list of apps where click-through is enabled. (If you don’t know what click-through is, my 2003 “The Problems With Click-Through” piece describes it.)
I’m giving Klicko a try, but I’ve lived with Mac OS X’s inconsistent click-through policies for so long now that my resistance has been worn away.
