On Windows, I've been using Switcher and the one feature that I really like is being able to switch to applications by typing in portions of their title. Is there an application for Mac OS X (10.7) that provides similar functionality?

  • Not to be too picky, but all of these apps only switch by Application Name, not Window Title. Ideally, I would like to use document names or web page titles to switch between apps. – Soumya Jun 18 '12 at 19:34
