Okay, I am copying this from Google Effects, but GNOME has also its very own strong subconscious points.
- 1. TopLeftHotspot: You login in Windows? You tap Top-Left edge of your screen. You login in Unity? You still tap Top-Left edge of your screen. You just can’t help it :)
- 2. AltTab: Windows Overview has overtaken the classic AltTab way to switch Apps. To be honest in that also helped the very bad GNOME 3 AltTab behavior, but still this isn’t the main reason, I think!
- 3. Pressure Tray: Yesterday I said to Jasper; “every time I am in 3.6 I can’t stop trying to open the Tray by hitting it fast”. Yep!, GNOME 3.8 brings another “bad” habit ;)
Barriers, Smooth Scrolling, OSD
This is a video that shows:
- 1. Barriers Visualization in Notification Tray
- 2. Smooth Scrolling in Volume. Smooth Scrolling works in many other components but my mouse doesn’t support it, where my keyboard does. Both Logitech.
- 3. OSDs in Overview. A work mainly by Florian Mullner. I had wrote in a previous post that OSD’s weren’t visible, but Florian fixed that 2 days after that post, and I am correcting it now.
To use this blue/grey visualization in bottom you need to download the Tray Pressure Visualizer Extension by Jasper.
