The PowerBook Is Back en Route

Thank the lord. This PC business is for the birds.

Something particularly irritating about PCs is that the window manager aspect of Windows fails to provide a utility to tab through multiple windows of the same application conveniently.

Example, you have 3 “windows” of your browser open (I suggest you grab Thundebird from Mozilla.org) and you want to cycle through them without using a mouse or navigating to the taskbar.

Can’t do it.

In the Mac universe the command+~ key will cycle through them. Add a shift to that and it will cycle backwards.

This is very handy for those who want to keep their hands on the keyboard (fast) versus having to lift a hand and move to a mouse (or trackpad, or keyboard nipple).
