The ABSOLUTE best app switcher ever was...
Authored by: tmarkt on Jul 22, '06 01:29:54PM

TASKMENUBAR! This great classic app put an icon of an opened app into the menubar. So if you opened 5 apps, it put the 5 app icons in the menu bar where you could quickly glance at it to see what was opened. With ONE hand, all you had to do was click on an icon in the menubar to get to that app. If you double-clicked on an icon in the menubar, you got that app AND hide all other apps.

I've never used an easier app switcher since.

I've emailed the author of that shareware a couple of times asking if he'd make a version for OS X but he says he's happy with the dock.

On a final note, somebody in another post in this site I think said that you could configure Butler to load opened app icons into the menubar. If this is true, it may be a good substitute for taskmenubar.
