Description:

Open files/tabs switcher to quickly switch between tabs with less keystrokes than Recent Files. Open files are selected from a list in most recently used order, similarly to Alt-Tab in Windows or Ctrl-Tab in Opera. By default the action is mapped to Alt-A, but another popular assignment is Ctrl-Tab.

Thanks to Timur Zambalayev for the original plugin, Martin Fuhrer for a major contribution in the form of a rewrite and Mark Scott for patching a bug. Follow further development of this plugin on GitHub or follow me on twitter for announcements and other things.

This is great I can confirm that it works exltacy as described on PhpStorm 4.0 117.222 and plugin version 0.2.2.Is there any way to attach the documentation? (CMD-J) When I type a function the parameter popup shows me the parameters (which is dead useful) if there was any way of attaching the documentation as well I wouldn't need to go to the node site at all..

Great plug-in but I have to say I don't like the change from 2.1.5 to 2.1.7. I generally use the mouse as little as possible, but being able to use it to change the selected file was a useful feature IMHO. Alt+a, move mouse, release keys to switch to the desired file can sometimes be quicker than successive Alt+a (or Alt+Shift+a) presses. I'm rolling back to 2.1.5.

Essential plugin, have lived off alt-tab since TurboPascal in the 80s.

I'm new to IntelliJ, and this is the first 3rd party plugin I installed. It works great, and saves me time since I'm so comfortable with Ctrl-Tab. Thanks for the great plugin!

Alt-A editor-tab switching combined with the Navigator bar is all I need to quickly navigate Editor windows.

This plugin enables in IDEA native OS switching between editors. Like Alt+Tab in Windows, here you can use Alt+A. Very native and usefull thing.
