For the sake of migrators missing their favorite app switcher I figured I should post these Dock tips while the list is fresh in my mind. Nobody loves the Dock, but you might as well fully use what's there... (and then you should buy LaunchBar)
  • option-click to hide current app when switching
  • control-click to pull up a menu immediately
  • cmd-click to show item in Finder
  • cmd-option-click to switch and Hide Others
  • cmd-tab cycles forward; cmd-shift-tab cycles backward; then:
    • cmd-shift to cycle backward
    • cmd-q to quit selected app without foregrounding
    • cmd-h to hide selected app
  • cmd-option-D toggles dock hiding.
