Switch between open iChat windows Apps
This doesn't appear to be documented anywhere in the program of help files, but command-` (below the ESC key on US keyboards) will switch between multiple open iChat windows.

[Editor's note: This also works in the 10.2 Finder ... I honestly can't recall whether it worked in 10.1 or not.]

Actually it seems to work system-wide, to switch between windows in the same Application. Works for Eudora, IE, Address Book, etc.

Command-` in 10.1

In 10.1.5 it seems that hitting "Command-`" in the Finder brings up the "Go To Folder" box.

Works everywhere

This works in all Cocoa applications and at least most Carbon applications. However, the Finder in 10.1.x uses that for Go To Folder. In Jaguar, the Finder has changed that to Cmd-Shift-G, and I assume Cmd-` will switch windows in the finder now.

omg thank you! this has been killing me (ok, maybe a bit dramatic...). It totally works with OpenOffice. Seriously, you just made my life so much easier.
