    I'm still on the curb trying to decide when the best time to make the switch to a Mac is, although the new 17" PB just might be the kick in the pants I need - but I digress...

    In Windows, there is a handy-dandy feature that allows you to quickly switch from one application to another. You hold ALT and tap the TAB key to surf around all your open windows.

    I do a lot of webwork and am constantly changing from Flash to a scripting window to a browser, et cetera, and I've become quite a slave to the feature.

    Is there a Mac equivalent to this function?

    Command (apple)-tab switches between apps in the dock.

    liteswitch x

    there is an app. called liteswitch x, which behaves with alt + tab exactly like win alt + tab.

    it's imo a lot better than the standard mac alt + tab

    Good God, you people are fast! Thanks for the info - one less indecision point, not that I was going to make my switch decision ride on the existence of a single feature on an otherwise perpetually annoying platform.

    Thanks again!
