Using the Application Switcher to open files can sometimes be faster than hunting for an Application's window or searching through a jam packed Dock for an Application's icon.

This release coincides with news that the Power Mac G5, which was announced at Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference in June, is now shipping in its single-processor configurations.
