    Pros: 

    Keeps me focused on the task as hand. I appreciate the keyboard shortcut to quick toggle when I need to reference an unfocused window.

    Cons: 

    I know of no alternative.

    This has been a standard app on my machine. It is one of those utilities that does its work day in and day out making my experience a much more pleasant one. I have wrestled from time to time with how strong to set the opaqueness of my Haze in order to give me a good workspace. I have also not toyed much with changing the color of the haze, but expect this could make for a fresh workspace, if needed.

    Pros: 

    Simple

    Cons: 

    Not Free

    There are several free competitors: Doodim, Hocus Focus, Backdrop, and Isolator, DeskCover.

    Copypast - the author took the idea from Izolator or from other free alternatives that appeared earlier and implemented HazeOver
