Skippy-XD is a program that provides Exposé-like features found on the Mac OS X operating system. It is a standalone application for providing a window picker with live previews (including live video) on Linux desktops that run an X server with compositing support. Thus it is not part of the window manager, and the compositing is not being used all the time. If you work with many windows, your desktop may begin to get cluttered. You can use Skippy-XD to quickly and conveniently find the right window that you are looking for. It allows you to press a hotkey and see miniature versions of all your active windows at once. To use Skippy-XD, you need Xfce (xfwm4) or a NetWM compliant window manager (LXDE, Openbox-based window managers, etc.).
