SwBuff

DavidPonce has written library swbuff.el, which lets you cycle among existing buffers in an agreeable fashion. Download it here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/emhacks/.

Enhancements

The following enhancements to swbuff.el are also available:

swbuff-advice

swbuff-advice.el – allows the use of more than one set of regexp filters. You can specify inclusive and additive-exclusive filters, in addition to exclusionary filters. By JosephLCasadonteJr. Download it here: http://www.northbound-train.com/emacs.html#MyPackages.

swbuff-x

Lisp:swbuff-x.el – By KahlilHodgson. New features:

swbuff-y

Discontinued. Instead nXhtml now contains a version of ControlTABbufferCycling based on ido-mode.

Tips and tricks

By mistake I used ‘swbuff-switch-to-previous-buffer’ but what I really wanted to use was ‘swbuff-switch-to-next-buffer’. – MaDa

You can control swbuff by clicking on the buffer name in the mode line.
