Bring up the app switcher using some Logitech mice System
I noticed this tonight ... with my Logitech G5 mouse, I have a scroll wheel with the horizontal scroll feature. If I push down hard on the scroll wheel (clicking it), and then lean it to the right slightly and let go (the horizontal scroll method), it will bring up the application switcher. You can then use the mouse to scroll left or right in the application switcher with ease. For some reason, it doesn't work if I lean it to the left and press, only right.

This is great when you are dragging, right clicking to copy something, and then switching programs to paste it somewhere else, as you can do it all with short mousestrokes. You can also use the horizontal scrolling when the application switcher is already up (by hitting Command-Tab), but that seems rather stupid as it would require two hands.

If you have enabled some feature such as Exposť for the middle click button, this hint will likely not work the same way.

This works with Microsoft scroll mice as well.
