Provides an Alt-Tab like that in Win7: Thumbnails in the switcher, plus window previews. The window title is displayed at the top of the switcher, for the highlighted window. Thumbnails are arranged in a grid. In this switcher, the traditional manners of tabbing are possible: active workspace, active app, and all workspaces. One may also switch workspaces while tabbing, or switch from tabbing all windows to the windows of a single app, like in Metacity. Press the "Home" or "End" key to go to the beginning or end of the window list, respectively.
To install, unzip the archive in ~/.local/share/cinnamon/extensions/, and restart Cinnamon (Alt-F2, "r", Enter).
Based on the default Cinnamon Alt-Tab, with code from SavageTiger's Gnome2AltTab extension.
