yes, but the extension would be more smart, and for example, using left
and right mouse button you can swap more time forward or backward from
open windows

when I have my right hand on the mouse, and I bring up a window in the
foreground or open a new windows, then to return to the previous one
windows I should use my left hand and press alt-tab.
If I had a button on the top bar I would only have to press that to
return to the previous window, and press it more time to swap from two

the extension should simulate the use of alt-tab, so pressing the
button once swaps current window with previous, two quick clicks or
more, swaps two or more windows.

I believe that a function like this could be useful and simple to
build, but I'm not a programmer and I struggle to implement it.
So I used argos + xdotool and it works.

Thanks Dario
