    Switcher requires Aero to run, so it works best if you have a version of Vista and a system that supports Aero.

One of my favorite features in Mac OS is Expose, a built-in app that makes it easy to navigate through open windows and programs. In Windows Vista, the built-in Aero application switcher tries to approximate this function but doesnt do a good job.

Switcher, on the other hand, is an almost perfect duplication of Exposes features and is customizable to your preferences. Best of all, its free. More Info »
