Here's a screenshot that shows this (very simple) feature and how it's useful.
What people think? I really believe this would be a 0% complexity
addition and the usefulness would be very high.
Left is how it is. Right is how it could be (with current day highlighted).
Does anyone else think this would help a lot those who use cal
constantly? Let's discuss!
Thanks for your time.
