g-man is a GUI front end for viewing man pages. It allows you to view man pages in a separate scrollable window (unlike Terminal) and to search for text within a man page. In addition, g-man gives you access to summaries of all man pages by section with short descriptions of the pages. These summaries are also searchable making it easy to find a command when you may know it's name.

Needs multiple window support - I would have given this a 5 if it could have multiple instances / windows.
Ok but missing important features - Two features necessary to make this app useful: - Multiple windows - Add/Delete man paths
