Quit and hide apps while tab-cycling Desktop
To hide an application while command-tabbing between your open apps, simply hold down "H" while that application is highlighted in the dock. Similarly, hold down "Q" to quit the selected application. This is a great way to hide or quit apps without making them active first.

The only thing to watch is that there's no "undo" for this -- once the app is hidden, it's hidden until selected. And when you release the "Q", the selected application quits immediately.

If you command-tab, then command-shift a few times, it scrolls apps in the opposite direction.

This is a nice feature, but the "Q" doesn't work to quit applications. On my Azerty keyboard I have to use "A" to quit an application....
