Pretty interesting. Did you notice that at one point they said that they were eliminating the computation time so that the transitions seemed almost instantaneous?

Have you used synctex between your Source and Preview window under TeXShop? Cmd-Click somewhere in your Source or Preview window and you will get a highlight in the other window so you can go back and forth quickly. Not a glitzy as Gliimpse but it is quite useful. 

Good Luck,
