Response to: All you need is focus follows mouse in Terminal?

I'm sufficiently accustomed to having events act on the window currently under the mouse that I'm constantly closing the wrong window or otherwise taking actions on the wrong place.


Another massive benefit of FFM is the ability to type on a (largely obscured) window while reading data from an unobscured, but unfocused, foreground window. The desktop contortions you have to go through to do this without FFM pretty much suck.
