SCOTZ: An Improved Window Switching Tool

SCOTZ (for Spatially COnsistent Thumbnail Zones) is a window switching tool developed at the  Human-Computer Interaction and Multimedia Lab at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand, with partial funding from the Marsden Fund.

The design of SCOTZ is based on research about how people switch between windows. SCOTZ adapts to your window switching behaviour by allocating more space to your favourite applications, making them easier to find and switch to, while keeping items in relatively stable locations.

SCOTZ is currently at beta status and is used as a research tool. For all questions, bug reports and other remarks, use windowswitcher@gmail.com.
