I use it often. I have several programs that I always want to be in
fullscreen mode: Firefox, OpenOffice, Adobe Reader. I have a tag for
them and then I can easily switch between them.

If a view in monocle layout contains too many clients, then it becomes
difficult to maintain state in the head which clients exists and where
we are in the order. But if it is just 3 or 4 clients, then one doesn't
need to keep track of things in the head -- it is enough to just cycle
all clients until the one you want pops up.
