    I just found this out by accident, but if you have a few windows open (open up a few apps to test it) and hit F9 (or squeeze the mouse, etc.) and if you then hit "tab" a few times, it cycles through the windows with a cool little falling effect, I guess you can say. Try it out, it's really cool, and surprisingly useful!

    Damn I wonder how long this trick has been around and I've never noticed it!

    Incredible! And even more if you wonder how many of these "easter eggs" could still be hidden from us. Well not hidden, but unknown maybe.

    i think it's because we have to hit fn + F9 to use it.

    i have this function set to upper left active window corner in exposé, so i just move my cursor whenever i need to see all the windows.

    Its just switching from All Application Windows Expose to Present Application Windows Expose. If you notice. If you use just Present Application Windows Expose and then hit tab, it does the same thing. So, realistically its just a new feature in Present Applications Windows Expose that has been discovered by only a few so far. Good find by the way.

    Honestly, it's all the little thoughts like this that make OS X so much fun to use. Apple could have simply stopped in so many places, but they added little extra things that enhance the user experience ever so slightly.
