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.

And don't forget, unlike the...

And don't forget, unlike the built-in app switcher, LiteSwitch sorts the icons of the displayed apps by the order they've been used, with the most recent apps sorted to the left.

So, if you're switching back and forth between two apps, it only takes two presses of the tab key with the command key down to switch between them. Whereas the built-in app switcher can take up to n+1 tab-key presses, where n is the number of applications running.

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. »
