Re: [Usability] Taking Advantage of Spatial Memory with the GS Window Picker

Maintaining height and width proportion is important for recognition. You know that your Empathy buddy list has this certain shape so it's easier to find it if it maintains the shape in its instance in the Window Picker. 

As for zooming in on mouse hover or something, that would be a useful feature

This imposes the problem that some windows (those that are very wide or
high) become very small. Anyway, in the last days using gnome-shell I
have been thinking about a possible solution for it.

It would be nice if mouse-over in the overview would (after some delay,
say 0.5s) zoom into the selected window to about 70% of the overview
size so the user can easier identify a window. Some windows just look
very similar (for example if you opened multiple terminals).

Just my 2 cents,
