If many windows are open, cycling through them can get highly annoying.

Which window manager has the ability to search through the windows by typing in the title or text inside the application?

For example: Searching for “Stac Firef” will find the StackExchange Firefox window quickly.

I would appreciate your help.

  • i3wm's IPC could be used for scripting a feature like this. see i3ipc-python and example scripts.

KDE's Krunner will do this. Not technically part of the WM.
