Duplicate Windows Alternatives

    Duplicate Windows is described as 'visually copies any window in Mac OS X live and on-the-fly. It’s like display mirroring for individual windows! I created the tool to display windows across multiple monitors in extended desktop mode during presentations'. There are eight alternatives to Duplicate Windows for Mac, Windows, Google Chrome and SIMBL. The best alternative is OnTopReplica, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Duplicate Windows are PiP for Mac (Free, Open Source), Afloat (Free, Open Source), PiP-Tool (Free, Open Source) and Picture In Picture (Paid).
