what can it do that i can't do with use of alt+tab?
please help, don't understand.
wow! i never realised you could do that with alt tab. hours of fun.
is officially the greatest thing ever.
especially when you're pissing around at work and someone who shouldn't see you doing this walks into the room.
alt + tab rules
i love you for 2 things:
using alt + tab
prefering large maps on streetmap.co.uk
Why: http://maps.google.co.uk owns it for sure...
and it's all tidier and stuff.
has never ever bothered me. i can appreciate it if it might causing your system to lag but mine is three years old now and i've never really had any problems with it.
but really, nothing beats f9 on the mac.

Make your desktop look really untidy?
Nothing beats Windows Key + M on a PC... :D
and it all goes back to normal once you click on the window you want.
and F11 on a mac beats windows + M cos it shows your desktop by throwing all your windows into the corners in the most ace way ever.
I think I'm turning into colin.
but he's right, HE'S RIGHT, DAMMIT. macs roolz.
I was being somewhat facetious based on knowing it was a lot cooler than that picture suggested ;-)
I am still tempted to wipe my laptop down and test Vista beta out on it. But I don't think I can be arsed setting it all back up again after :D
Given how Live Messenger fucks up the first time you run it after install, I'm not totally convinced yet.
flip between things in windows.
CTRL+Tab to move between windows is sequential so if I have to rapidly flip between two windows in Firefox (or IE+extensions) but there's 3 or more then it's a pain in the arse because I press CTRL+Tab a LOT.
ALT+Tab only swaps between the most recently used windows.
In short: ALT+Tab is better.
With alt-tab, you have one hand keyboard-bound. With tabbed browsing, you have one hand for browsing and one for wanking.
