10.7: Application specific App Exposť behavior Apps
Some applications have special features when viewed under Application Exposť.

TextEdit will show a Cover Flow view of the history of text files you've opened, even after those files are closed. Windows that are open, but minimized will show up at the beginning of the list.

Quicktime X shows Cover Flow history identical to TextEdit.

Safari shows minimized windows in the Cover Flow area, but not the history.

Some third party apps, for instance, TextMate, will also display their history and minimized windows when in Application Exposť.

[crarko adds: Some of these have been mentioned before, but it's worth noting that the behavior varies from program to program.]

The only variance is that document-based apps show your Recently Opened documents. All apps show minimized windows.

Worth noting too that those apps which show recently used files in Exposť can also show them from their Dock icons, even when the app is closed, simply by clicking and holding / two-finger tapping / right-clicking their Dock icon and selecting 'show recents'.

You can also get to this by hovering over the icon in the dock and doing the App Exposť gesture (three or four finger swipe down, depending on your choices in System Preferences).
