Eclipse on the Mac leaves a lot to be desired. The Maclipse project is aimed at making Eclipse look, feel, and perform in the way we expect of Mac apps. There are several goals of the Maclipse project:
Modify the default theme of Eclipse to look more like a Mac app
Modify the default icons of Eclipse to look more like Mac icons
Tweak the behaviors of SWT widgets to look and behave more like the Mac native widgets
Bring forward SWT patches from future Eclipse releases to turnaround desirable fixes faster
... by any means necessary
If we think something works better, runs faster, or just plain looks cooler than stock Eclipse, we're going to make it happen.
