I know there must be a load of people here using Mac, and for those who use iTerm 2 as their console applications, here is a good feature that I personally find very useful.
If you already know about this, great! If not, here you go:
cmd+D splits the window horizontally
cmd+shift+D splits the window vertically, and of course, you can mix them up too :)
Now, you can have your compass watch up in a corner where you can always see, mean while have another for grep if you need to search for something... in my case, I may have another one runs Meteor/Mrt, etc.
Just to save some hassle back and forth between tabs or multiple iterm instances ;)
