More about SMBAct advantages

Contexts is a good tool, but its functionality is limited only by the Window Switcher.

SMBAct, on the other hand, provides many more features:

  • full Window Management, including positioning and resizing windows.
  • ability to wrap any website in an embedded browser window based on Chromium functionality.
  • and of course, multiplatform. SMBAct works in Windows, macOS, and Linux the same way and you don’t have to change your habits every time.
