Is there a keyboard shortcut for switching focus from one monitor to the next in Unity?

Basically, if I am working on my web-browser on my right screen, how can I switch to my terminal on my left screen?

If you don't have terminal on your right screen, too, you can simply alt+tab to terminal and focus will move accordingly.

That said, you might want to check out this related post on Ubuntu shortcuts.
