    By default, one has to perform an action (moving the pointer to the top left corner or maybe a hotkey) before they can do anything.

    Open the overview THEN search for an app.
    Open the overview THEN click on a launcher in the favourites bar.
    ?
    Yeah, is a problem with Gnome. I love Unity Launcher to much to leave Ubuntu.

    Re: One simple thing that could make gnome 3 soooo MUCH better!

    There is a gnome shell extension I have started using called "dash-to-dock" which gives a permanent launcher on the desktop.
    Unlike the "dock" extensions, this replaces the overview dock, rather than having one for the desktop and another for the overview.
    Not only that, it comes complete with the "dodge" intellihide feature ripped out of unity last release.

    It solves part of the problem I mentioned and this extension alone has made up my mind once and for all to drop unity completely and go the gnome shell route.
