Contexts gives you 4 simple and fast ways to switch windows.

1. Switch with one click to any window

An auto-hiding sidebar shows your windows organized in groups. It's basically a Dock — for your windows.
  • Move cursor to sidebar and click window's title.
  • Reorder groups or windows by dragging them up or down.
  • Swipe towards screen edge with cursor over sidebar to hide it if auto-hiding is turned-off.

2. Switch with one keystroke to 9 windows and with two keystrokes to any window

This is lightning fast. You will be switching to your frequently used windows like you do typing — without even needing to think about it.
  • Press Option+X to bring forward Xth window of first group. E.g. Option+2 brings forward window 2.
  • Or
  • Hold Option and press XY to bring forward window YX. E.g. Option+21 brings forward window 21.

3. Cycle through recently used windows

Command+Tab fails for applications with multiple windows, right? — so instead you can use Option+Tab to get to any window directly.
  • 1. Press Option+Tab to show panel with windows listed in order of activity.
  • 2. While holding Option press Tab to move down or Shift+Tab to move up in list.
  • 3. Release Option to bring selected window to front.

4. Switch with search to any window

Yup, we got this too. Works just like you would expect it to. Perfect for infrequently used windows.
  • 1. Press Option+` to show panel in search mode.
  • 2. Type a few characters from application name or window title. Move up or down with arrow keys.
  • 3. Press Enter to bring selected window to front.
