Neither, I'm using one of the three 'thumb' buttons in my mouse.

I am confused. What is Start+Tab? Alt+Tab I understand and have been using for years.

With my eyes, I don't like to have to squint, so Start + Tab works better for me.

I have not tried that software, but this works in Opera without it. Of course it just cycles between tabs.

I've tried a few options that trigger the native 3D flip on a mouse action but this one maps it's own windows and it just works for me - YMMV

To be honest I often just use the taskbar to switch apps as I tend to keep a minimum number of windows open to complete the task at hand - goes back to Windows 3x where windows resources were a bit more limited

It's not referred to as Start+Tab...it's correctly called Win+Tab, and it launches 3D Flip...the Aero version of Alt+Tab.
