  1. Truth is, this feature has been around on the Mac platform for a while. I am not going to debate who started it first. But I know that Mac OS 9 even had cmd-tab application switching. As for innovation check out that expose thing. Now thats a innovative way to switch applications or windows and other things.

    Can you dig it!

  2. It’s Command-Tab; there’s no alt key on the Mac keyboard.

    I’ve used a neat little freebie utility called LiteSwitch since OS 8.6 that did this trick very nicely. Panther’s iteration of the keyboard app switch broke LiteSwitch – plus it didn’t do half the things that I had become accustomed to – so I had to disable Panther’s switcher. Pity, that.

    Exposé, though, is a really, really, really nifty addition.
