Before building my own app, I looked around at similar apps. However, none was completely satisfactory so I rolled my own. Also, the almost-good-enough apps are not open-source.
|HyperSwitch and HyperDock||$10. Closed-source. Thumbnails are too small. App icon is on top of the thumbnail|
|WindowSwitcher||$7. Closed-source. Thumbnails are small and blurry. App icon is on top of the thumbnail|
|Switch||Open Source. Thumbnails are small. Very little customization. Latest release is from 2016|
|Witch and Context||$10-15. Closed-source. Focus on text. No thumbnails|
|MissionControl Plus||$10. Closed-source. No chronology and order to windows. Hard to navigate windows with keyboard|
|Built-in MissionControl||No keyboard support|
||Only shows apps, not windows (note: can press down to see window of selected app)|
||Cycles through tabs and windows, but only of the same app. Only cycling, no direct access|
There are also related apps which don’t really overlap in functionality, but target similar needs: Swish, Hookshot, Magnet, Spectacle, Rectangle, yabai, LayAuto, OptimalLayout, BetterTouchTool, BetterSnapTool, Moom, uBar
