Using `C-x b' without an argument displays the most

oftentimes I need to briefly visit another file, and
when I return to a buffer that is already displayed in
another frames, I need to specify its name explicity.

Is there some way I could modify the behavior of
`switch-to-buffer' so that invoking `C-x b' without an
argument will bring me back to the most recent buffer,
whether or not it is currently displayed in another

Try this:

(defadvice switch-to-buffer (before interactive-default-buffer activate)
  "Consider buffers that are already visible as the default BUFFER."
  (interactive (list (read-buffer "Switch to buffer: "
                                  (other-buffer (current-buffer) t)))))
