Contexts 3.2.0 – Fast window switcher.

Contexts 3.2.0

Contexts is a radically faster and simpler window switcher. It gives you 4 ways to switch windows:

  1. Switch with one click to any window: An auto-hiding sidebar shows your windows organized in groups. To switch to a window just click its title in the list. It is as simple as that.
  2. Switch with one keystroke to 9 windows and with two keystrokes to any window: This is super fast. Each window gets a window number based on its position in the list. To switch to a window just press Option+window-number. It you are a keyboard person you will love it.
  3. Cycle through recently used windows: Command+Tab switcher fails if your applications have multiple windows. With Option+Tab Contexts lets you cycle through individual windows and switch to any of them directly.
  4. Switch with search to any window: Invoke panel with keyboard shortcut and type a few characters from the application name or window title to filter the list using fuzzy matching. Press enter to bring selected window forward.

What’s New

Version 3.2.0:

  • Added an option to Rules > “Group windows” which groups all apps and windows together ordered alphabatically by app name.
  • When Rules > “Group windows” is set to “By Space”, windows of apps assigned to all Desktop Spaces are put in the Full Screen group instead of the Desktop 1 group.
  • Added option Search > “Allow one mismatched character”. If it is disabled, search results will only include items whose app name and window title contain all the characters in the search query.
  • When System Preferences > Trackpad > Scroll & Zoom > “Scroll direction: Natural preference” is set to off, the gesture to hide Sidebar works in the correct direction.
  • Command-Backquote (`) and Option-Backquote (`) switchers can be enabled even if the corresponding Tab switchers are disabled.
  • Emacs borderless full screen windows are tracked.
