Looking for a "window thumbs dock" kind of tool.

Resize is not a good option. I want the thumb as small as like 1 square
inch. And most of the window cannot be resized to that small. Windows like
terminal might be able to do, but that is just a black box with a few chars
flush really quickly in it.
Second idea is pretty close, something like win 7 already did. Is there
tools like this?
And in fact, my idea is even lazier. I want the zoomed thumb be shown all
the time. So I do not have to interrupt my work to move the mouse through
all the icons.
I think this is somehow realized by xmonad's plugin. But I am not using
xmonad now, so a general tool is appreciating.
