Basic Mac OS question

So when I use my brothers Mac with the latest OS on it I can't seem to figure this out and it is driving me nuts.

When on the internet and you have more than 1 browser open not just tabs how can you get to it without moving the other window out of the way?

Like in windows they are all laid out nice and easy to find on the bottom task bar?

Just asking lol. Unless I missed it I only can see the browser open in the lower right as one or it seems that way since it is kind of cramped in there with other programs open... Not easy to switch between 2 or 3 open browsers that I have figured out...

use expose. depending on what computer it is, it would vary how to open it. It will be F9 or Fn+F9. You can also set it up in system preferences to a screen corner.

MamaJam is on a distinguished road

cmd+m also moves the current window and minimizes it, but I suggest using Lowfat's opinion, there is also something called active screen corners which is a very powerful tool, it is also in the expose menu.

Guess it's not the easiest thing to do, but I will have to try it out...

you can use cmd-tab, which functions just like alt tab in windows, or click on the dock icon for the browser you want to use, and all windows of that browser open (or any other app you click) will move to the top of the z-order (i regularly have safari, opera, firefox, msn, and a few other apps open at the same time)

EDIT: if you're trying to change windows with in the same program, you can use expose like suggest above, or right click the dock icon, a context menu will pop up with all open windows listed among a few other options
