With broadband, I've gone back to using my Linux box (rather than my iBook) as my main 'net machine, and found myself missing the OSX Exposé feature; i.e., the way that pressing F10 causes all the current application's windows to be (temporarily) scaled down and shown alongside each other, for the user to take their pick. Browsing the web on OSX, I have grown used to it. The fact that Firefox doesn't have a window menu (as Mozilla did) compounds it, as digging in the pile of browser windows invariably involves using the abbreviated and randomly-ordered WindowMaker window menu.

I feel a window manager change coming on. Can anyone recommend a Linux/X11 window manager/utility that does something like Exposé? I'm willing to allow for X11 not being Quartz and the scaled-down windows not being animated.
