I am used to resize and move windows using the mouse from awesome wm and ion3. in i3 it is possible only by aiming at the borders which is more fiddly (at least with the default config)

Is it possible to configure i3 to resize the windows by holding mod and dragging with the right mouse button anywhere on the window?

Yeah, just hold the modifier key and right-click on the window. i3 will use the border closest to the cursor for resizing.

oh, thanks, getting the cursor near the right border actually does work
