Scroll through windows in Exposť's All Windows mode System
I just noticed purely by accident that after invoking Exposť's All Windows mode, I can roll the scroll ball on the Mighty Mouse and the selection 'cursor' (the one showing which window will become active) moves about the available windows in a predictable, if not intuitive, manner.

[ damn, there's the whole comment in the title! ]

And the navigation seems oddly geographical not sequential to me - i.e. it's up/down and left/right, rather than following a logical sequence through the windows.

The same is possible when viewing all Spaces (Function-F8) and Application Windows (Function F10).

The Mighty Mouse scroll button also switches Safari Tabs when the cursor is in the Tab Bar, but only works up and down, not left-right, which is a bit illogical.

Not Just the Mighty Mouse

I have a Microsoft wireless Intellimouse with a tilt wheel, and it works somewhat similarly: use the tilt to switch horizontally, and scroll to swith vertically.

You can also use the Tab key to move thru the same selection (i.e.: F9, tab).
It has the advantage of displaying the windows full size.
