Alt-tab The act of using the ALT+ TAB keys to jump from application to application (Or document to document), or in the workplace, using those keys to hide the website of non working nature to go back to an open document looking like you're doing real work. I hate that I can't alt-tab.

Before building my own app, I looked around at similar apps. However, none was completely satisfactory so I rolled my own. Also, the almost-good-enough apps are not open-source.

HyperSwitch and HyperDock$10. Closed-source. Thumbnails are too small. App icon is on top of the thumbnail
WindowSwitcher$7. Closed-source. Thumbnails are small and blurry. App icon is on top of the thumbnail
SwitchOpen Source. Thumbnails are small. Very little customization. Latest release is from 2016
Witch and Context$10-15. Closed-source. Focus on text. No thumbnails
MissionControl Plus$10. Closed-source. No chronology and order to windows. Hard to navigate windows with keyboard
Built-in MissionControlNo keyboard support
Built-in ⌘ command + ⇥ tabOnly shows apps, not windows (note: can press down to see window of selected app)
Built-in ⌘ command + `Cycles through tabs and windows, but only of the same app. Only cycling, no direct access
