MacBreak Minute: LiteSwitch X

Proteron - LiteSwitch X

In the latest episode of MacBreak Minutes (subscribe), I talked about a favorite PreferencePane of mine called LiteSwitch.

LiteSwitch takes the basic app-switching functionality of OS X and adds some handy features, such as the ability to quit (or force-quit), relaunch, hide, reveal, Get Info, and more. Once you get used to this new power under your fingers, you'll never go back.

@Mike H - You're totally right -- I should have highlighted more of the extra functionality, like "CMD-F-R" to force relaunch, etc.

@Joshua: I'd never noticed that, but it does sound like an improvement.

@Nik: Witch is awesome and I can also highly recommend it (I love Peter's stuff in general). I found Witch a bit much for my own needs, but I can see how it could easily become essential once you have your head around that extra functionality.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
