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.).
