# Land to window you choose~

Aiming to mimic tmux's `display-pane` feature, which enables you to choose
window interactively.

This plugin should be useful especially when you are working on high
resolution wide display.
Since with wide display, you are likely to open multiple window and
moving around window is a little bit tiresome.

This plugin make window excursion simplify.

1. display window label on statusbar
2. read input from you.
3. you can land to window you choose
