Above all else, keep what's needed up front, above other apps, presentations, while you work or play.

He3 - formerly known as "Helium 3", supports multiple file or web URLs as documents, each with its own settings as well as global preferences such as playlists and history, and ability to affect windows via a Finder status, CLI (command line interface) invocation, dock icon, and contextual menus.

He3 allows you to watch media, browse the web and do much more while you stay productive. Your content will never fall behind your other
windows even as you switch tasks.

He3 supports a number of per window preferences such
- auto-hide titling,
- customizable translucency mode
- size and position

that allows you to simultaneously see your content and your work, and restore it, without intercepting mouse clicks when it's not active, or translucent. You have the ability to click, drag, scroll behind your floating content.

Like prior versions, multiple windows will enhance your multi tasking, float over your work, keeping important things in sight, but now is a multiple window application, document based, but no "documents" to manage. All settings are automatic and internal and private. There's even a snapshot ability to share window image with others or record keeping.

He3 will save state for all windows for you, automatically. Also available is a history list, cookie jar stash, and both can be cleared or disabled as desired. Unless explicitly chosen all storage is internal, but easily tranferrable to or from playlist and play item files.

History catalogs in order, your viewing, can be sorted, exported and impoted, reqeuenced, and flattened to aggregate duplicates, also keeping a tally. Any and all of this can be managed or disabled or cleared.

Finally when you need to clear your screen instantly, He3 features a "QuickQuiet" feature to toggle its windows visibility.

It's your data, use it the way you want!

What’s New

Version 1.0.12

A number of modernizations and fixes
* playlist's controller usage re: drag-n-drop
* secure file save encoding fixes
* copy/cut/paste fixes
* widen support of local:// storage

So, He3 will "store" within the app's own defaults when using the local: url scheme. We are moving to mimic normal file: URL processing for this built-in aka local storage.
