Great app, a few problems
Authored by: dre00 on Feb 21, '05 11:23:08AM

Definitely a great app, although I did run into some issues -

Minor, but the alt-tab functionality doesn't quite behave as you'd expect when alt-tabbing "back and forth" between two windows. Sometimes it works fine, other times the "next" window on the list will pop up. There's a setting to tweak this slightly, but it still doesn't give the windows-style alt-tab functionality.

The main problem I have is that the app seems to have caused instability in my system. 1) The home and end keys somehow got remapped to Command-Left/Right. 2) Clicking on a running application in the dock caused a finder window to pop up pointing to the app's location, rather than focusing to the app itself. 3) Navigating to a directory in the finder caused the directory to appear in a new finder window, rather than opening in the same window.

When I removed Witch, all of those problems went away. I'm going to chalk this up to being a relatively new program with some bugs to work out, but otherwise, this will definitely go on the "required apps" list..
