I am on a quest to find the fastest way to navigate OS X. I will list the navigation methods and their pros and cons. Minimizing and maximizing individual windows Pros: - Gets the window out of your way with minimal fuss. Cons: - When trying to maximize the window again you have to do some searching in the dock. Using Cmd+Tab to select your app Pros: - Speedy, especially when used in conjunction with Hide (Cmd+H). - In Leopard we can now access the last minimized window as well. Cons: - We still cannot access every minimized window - only the last one. - Not all apps respond to Cmd+H (ProTools, I'm talking to you). This means we must minimize, and when we minimize Cmd+Tab becomes less effective. - Upon un-hiding an app, you are confronted with all of its windows - not just the one you wanted. Exposé Pros: - Quickly accessible. - Visually intuitive. Cons: - Minimized windows aren't accessible from Exposé. Spaces Pros: - Each space fully customizable. Quickly accessible. Cons: - Requires a moment of initial setup. So you see, each method has its pros and cons, but none have ever struck me as the perfect solution. I was wondering if a third party app like Quicksilver could be tweaked to overcome these obstacles or if anyone had any other suggestions.
