Autojump is a tool that acts as a complement to cd: it makes navigating your filesystem a lot faster. It works by automagically maintaining a database of the directories you use the most from the command line, and allows you to jump back and forth between them, by typing just a few letters of the name of the directory you want to jump to. It works for Linux, Mac, and Cygwin under Windows.
