I (and others, like Netbook users) don't have a large display|
Alt-Tab exists in GNOME now IN ADDITION TO the window list, why can't both a keyboard and mouse solution exist in shell? Most of my day is spend reading (not replying) to emails and reading on the web. My hand is never on the keyboard in the first place so needing to put on there is actually less efficient
The third example uses Compiz and as that's not compatible with GNOME Shell, it's not a solution
