Synergy -- Now with Drag and Drop!

Synergy is a groovy little tool we use to share mouse/keyboard between two machines and multiple monitors.
Synergy: Announcing the new drag and drop feature. Synergy lets you easily share your mouse and keyboard between multiple computers on your desk.

Drag and Drop is here! :D

It's here! Jerry and I have been working hard over the last few months to bring you the new drag and drop [between screens] feature. Next up, bug fixes! Usually this is a lengthy process, but with your donations we can speed this up...
How can you help? My dream is to expand our team and hire another software engineer to work on Synergy. I expect that this will double development speed.

Please, donate to Synergy

Help us continue our valuable work by contributing $10 or whatever you can afford. Thanks so much for your support! We wouldn't be here without your donations.
