Switch Your Windows Like a Maniac

Mac OS X has a Windows like feature to change applications. However, in Windows (ctrl+tab) you change, well, windows - but in OS X (cmd+tab) you change applications. So, if you have a dozen Word documents open and you want to switch to some document other than the latest one, you're out of luck.

But behold! You can change windows in OS X. Try cmd+' (I guess it's cmd+~ in U.S. keyboard layouts). I changed (in system preferences -> keyboard + mouse -> keyboard shortcuts) my shortcut to Cmd+§, because § is right above tab. Fast and smooth.
