Divider allows you to divide the entire large desktop or each monitor into several non-intersecting areas (tiles). If you put a window into one of such tiles, the window will expand up to tile's borders only. You can create as many custom tile layouts as you need and activate them on the fly as circumstances require.
If you prefer arrange your ShiChuang manually, Actual Multiple Monitors will help you make it faster and more accurate by snapping a certain edge of the dragged window to:
desktop or monitor boundaries
other ShiChuang (both from inside and outside)
custom virtual grid with a defined cell size
Also, you will get an improved version of the ShiChuang 7 Aero Snap feature: now it works on edges between monitors.
