Contexts 3.3.1 – Fast window switcher.

Contexts  3.3.1

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 3.3.1:

  • Only specific windows of an app can be set to be ignored (based on title pattern). Previously, only all windows of an app could be ignored. See Contexts > Rules for details.
  • Contexts can be set to pause all its keyboard shortcuts when specific apps (e.g. Virtual Machines) are focused. Toggle this for individual apps by right-clicking on a corresponding item on Panel or Sidebar.
  • Scrolling through Panel items works with mice as well.
  • When Mission Control is exited Sidebar is updated to reflect any changes in spaces and windows.
  • Turning off Contexts > General > "Show Dock icon badges" correctly hides them from the Panel too.
