Rotating the Aperture Browser Position

When keywording images in Aperture, I work in the split view. My cursor is parked in the keyword control bar and my eyes are on the image being keyworded. I like having the filmstrip browser so I can look ahead to the next photo. Often, the next photo in the shoot will get the same keywords, perfect for a quick lift & stamp.

The downside of the split view is it cramps the image I'm keywording. Hiding the inspector doesn't really help. Then I found View > Browser > Rotate Position (keyboard shortcut Shift-W). A world of difference when used in conjunction with hiding the inspector.

See this in action in the video below, and leave a comment on how you could use this in your workflow.
