Re: Staying In the Activities Area When Launching Applications

Of course this raises some questions (at least with me ;) like:

-How do you get users to know about this option 

-After opening f.e. Firefox while holding Ctrl, will it mean the Activities will hide again if I let go or will it just be staying open and wait for new input?

But overall I really like the Sound of this, especially the "Stack up Actions without re-entering the Menu" Part.
