It would be nice to allow search and launch rapidly, some ideas here
from the GNOME shell:
You get to the search by using the 'windows-key' or by going to the hot
corner . When you type the number of items that do match are shown.
The currently selected item (highlighted) can be launched directly by
hitting enter/return . You can go to the next item by using the
up/down keys . We could do something similar - just that we use the
greying effect to show matches and we could draw the hover-over
rectangle for the currently selected item that will launch immediately
when you click enter.
Sidenote: I Feature I like here in the GNOME shell is the possibility to
look something up in Google or Wikipedia directly (bottom of the page).
And to complete the GNOME shell tour: the search does as well look for
items on the hard drive .
