I looked at your link and honestly don’t see how it is superior to Alt+Tab in Unity:

After the initial Alt+Tab if you keep holding down the Alt key and tap the the Tab key it cycles through Windows and those with two or more sub-windows lets you pick between them. I think this is superior to Windows 7 but perhaps I’m biased.

Make sure you are running Unity

For Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:

$ grep "^Exec" /usr/share/xsessions/*
/usr/share/xsessions/gnome.desktop:Exec=gnome-session --session=gnome
/usr/share/xsessions/ubuntu.desktop:Exec=gnome-session --session=ubuntu

For Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:

$ grep "^Exec" /usr/share/xsessions/*
/usr/share/xsessions/gnome.desktop:Exec=gnome-session
/usr/share/xsessions/gnome-xorg.desktop:Exec=gnome-session
/usr/share/xsessions/ubuntu-communitheme-snap.desktop:Exec=env GNOME_SHELL_SESSION_MODE=ubuntu-communitheme /snap/communitheme/current/session
/usr/share/xsessions/ubuntu.desktop:Exec=env GNOME_SHELL_SESSION_MODE=ubuntu gnome-session --session=ubuntu
/usr/share/xsessions/unity.desktop:Exec=/usr/lib/gnome-session/run-systemd-session unity-session.target

Notice the last line (far right side) shows: unity-session.target
