SwiftSwitch is a RuneScape client that plays both the RuneScape Classic and RuneScape version of the game. SwiftSwitch was created by Jason Fah better known by his RuneScape name Strider3282.
SwiftSwitch was created in Visual Basic 6 and uses the Internet Explorer shdocvw.dll control to view Runescape. Which is exactly what Internet Explorer uses. Runescape is not loaded from a foreign source, but loaded from www.runescape.com. Simply put, SwiftSwitch is just like a browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox ect. but with tools and handy links designed specifically for Runescape players.
SwiftSwitch does NOT give any unfair advantages what-so-ever.

[18 Jul 2007] Update - 2.45 Multiple fixes
This update was made to address a number of issues that have popped up since the last update. The main change is the screenshot hotkey, a few weeks ago Jagex made an update to RuneScape giving players shortcuts to various interfaces via the F keys. Problem was we were using those for SwiftSwitch. So for a temporary fix we have changed the screenshot hotkey to F7 from F12, while we sort out something more permanent.
SwiftKit is still in development and we're hoping to have the website http://www.swiftkit.net up real soon which will have a development blog on it that will be updated frequently so you can monitor it's development progress. So make sure you bookmark it.
