Re: A task panel

I am glad to see you love this idea.
But I just have some skills with Gimp, that's all. I don't have any talent to make a piece of code.
I can just make a other mockup with an hotspot on the corner.

I have made just an copy paste of the actual Alt-Tab, but if we use a corner, we can imagine it like a circle. I will try build an other mockup but it should need more code to do that.

An other things, did I need to add a new page on the design playground?
And I try to connect me on the IRC but I should miss something. Did I need an account or an invitation?

Thanks for the support

I like the idea of having a taskbar too, at least an optional one, and
it would be useful to test how users feel with and without it.

But I don't think abusing the clock for that purpose is a good idea at
all. If you write an extension to do this, please use e.g. the
bottom-left corner, which is a much more sensible place for this kind of
thing, symmetrical to the message bar in the bottom-right corner.
