I believe compiz also does a window switcher that is just like the screen-shot provided by orschiro.

The first thing to do is to install the following:

sudo apt-get install compiz-config-settings-manager

In there the setting to enable, if they are not already enabled are:

"Shift-Switcher" and "Application-Switcher"

See below for where to set them and how they look:

You are searching for the “Scale” compiz plugin, super-s shortcut by default once enabled.

Thanks to all!

I should have been more precise, I guess.

I really like the stability and simplicity of Marco and tend to not wanting to use Compiz unless I really have to.

As far as i searched marco doesn't have such thing. But i am maybe wrong.
Xfce as a good one but more like Marco default. At least, better than Compton :disappointed:
