Wouldn’t it be great if you could switch directly to a tab in Safari or Finder or many other Mac apps? With Witch 4, you can. Try it today!

Witch, from Many Tricks, takes Command-Tab switching to the next level. Switch between apps, windows, and tabs in apps like Safari, Finder, and many other apps. Witch allows you to use multiple switchers, so you can choose Command-Tab for a horizontal apps-only switcher and assign Option-Tab to a vertical windows switcher. And you can use any switcher via the menu bar. There’s even a search mode that lets you find any window quickly by typing.

There are lots more features, too. Check out the release notes for the details.

Witch 4 is normally $14, but just $10 until April 9th. Owners of Witch 3 - whether bought from Many Tricks or the App Store - can upgrade for $8 ($6 until April 9th). Witch 4 is not on the App Store, because it cannot be sandboxed.
