There’s no reason to every type your name again. Or your email address, or anything else that you find your fingers pounding out over and over.

Juggling open applications is a fact of our computery lives. But it doesn’t need to require hunting for windows, trips to the Dock, the Command-Tab switcher, or even Apple’s Exposé. Nikolay Kropachev’s cleverly designed alternative, AmbiLauncher, lets you switch applications and even launch AppleScripts with ease. It works by making use of your screen’s edges--just not the top one, since that would interfere with the menu bar.
