How do I switch between applications?

In Windows, to switch between applications you press the CTRL+TAB key combination. This brings up a dialog which allows you to TAB between the open applications. Your Mac has the same functionality with a small variation. To switch between applications you can press ⌘+TAB. The image on the right shows the dialog resembling Windows.
Continue pressing TAB until you reach the application you want to switch to.

The difference you will find is that this only switches between application types. For example, if you have 3 Camino windows open, you cannot use ⌘+TAB to switch between the 3 open Camino applications. You need to use ⌘+TAB to switch to Camino. Then press ⌘+~ (tilde key) to switch between the Camino windows.
