OSX users, Apple fans start here
OSX users, pick up your pitchforks or any online tool you have. You’ll need it. Chromebooks just got a new feature called “Overview Mode” which works ( or at least looks at this moment ) like the mission control mode of OSX.
Chromebook users, start reading from here.
Chrome OS team has added a new featured called Overview Mode, hidden behind the flag chrome://flags/#enable-overview-mode. This works best when you have multiple windows open. Press the ]] button of your Chrome Device (or F5) to get a “birds eye view” of all open windows. From there, you can click on any window to go to it.
Update: This now works with ALT + TAB keyboard shortcut. Hold down both the keys to go to the Overview mode.
Here is how it looks like:

The feature is work-in-progress. But for now, it does a pretty and good job on my Chromebook. What we need to know now is if the team has plans to implement a track-pad gesture like OSX. On a Mac, you can get this mode with a three finger swipe. It will be pretty cool to have such a gesture on the Chromebook too.
