There is no need to bring forward windows of the frontmost app one by one until you get to the right one. An auto-hiding Sidebar lists your windows grouped by Space.
To switch just bring the cursor over to the one you want and click. Its basically a Dock — for your windows. You do not even need to move the cursor all the way to the Sidebar and back. Start scrolling down with two fingers from the top edge of trackpad at either the left end or right end.
The list will appear and the selected item will change as you move your fingers down or up. Lift fingers to switch to the selected item. Contexts is carefully crafted to look and feel like it is part of the operating system. And the Vibrant Dark theme looks gorgeous with the dark menu bar and Dock. The center window shows simulatenously on all displays by default.
So you no longer have to turn your head to look for your window switcher on another display. It will be right in front of you whenever you invoke it — always. And of course, each display can have its own Sidebar — which if you like, can list the windows on that display only. If you have any questions, suggestions, feedback, a bug to report, or just want to send us some appreciation, we are listening at hello contexts.

Another nice variation of this trick uses window snapping to put multiple windows alongside one another, sort of like a split screen view but while maintaining the capabilities of standard windows, and allowing for far more than just two window panels side-by-side.
