If you do F9 and then click ` or the tab button, it cycles through the windows.

Indeed, thank you for the tip. You can cycle through the windows and then press return when you find one you want.

That's cool! Have you ever tried opening a few programs and pressing Command + Tab? It shows the dock icons, inlarged, in the middle of the screen. If you continue to hold Command and click tab you cycle through the different programs.

and to add to this, hitting the "q" key will quit the highlighted application.

A nice touch I've noticed (with expose) is that you can select a window by just pressing F9 again after moving the mouse cursor over it (rather than clicking on it).

Awe man.. THAT is cool! (It's F2 for me, but still it rocks.) I did not know about that.

if you do shift+f9 it will go slow-motion (works with all others as well)

Weird, I can't get expose to do the window cycling shortcut. It just beeps at me.

You can also use the arrow keys to navigate the windows and change which one is selected.

The tabbing thing is way cooler than the arrow thing. I'm going to start using that more than dock minimization.

Wow. You'd think I would have heard about that before. Sick.

The tabbing thing seems to switch between apps, not windows, when I do it. It's like F10, sort of, but it less you switch apps.

Wow the tabbing is cool - I hadn't really got the point, thinking it was just like the arrow thing.... It's even better when combined with the shift slow motion, but you have to hold shift when originally pressing F9, not just with the tab. It's a shame you can't (don't seem to be able to) hide apps in that mode as well, i.e. tab, h, would be cool!
