Comment Re:Volume Control (Score 0) 480

Sigh. Please stop trolling. The Knob applet I mentioned is nothing like the one in Quicktime player.

Firstly, you only require a single left click to change volume, not drag-n-drop as in the Quicktime player. Let me know if you can change volume with a single click with those default volume controls in Windows, Mac, KDE, and GNOME. Most probably you have click once or twice, wait for popup, move you pointer to the popup and click again to change volume, then click again to close the popup/focus back to your application.

Secondly, you can mute/unmute with a single middle click, instead of dragging down and up all the way as in the Quicktime player. Again, let me know if you can mute/unmute with a single click using those default volume controls. Most probably you have click once or twice, wait for popup, move you pointer to the popup and click again to mark a checkbox, then click again to close the popup/focus back to your application.

Finally, being an applet, Knob has the extra benefits that it does not steal the focus and your current volume level is always visible to you.
