I find gnome to be well-designed for productive work, but less for “chill time”. By chill time I refer to these moments where I am mostly using one single hand to browse/watch stuff around (not using my keyboard very much).
On my laptop with a touchpad, no problems as I can trigger the overview (with that single hand, no keyboard) to switch between windows.
On the desktop however, one need to reach for the corner and then get back to the center to switch windows.
I propose a mouse combination, that would be the equivalent to the three fingers swipe up on touchpads. For example:
- quick double right click anywhere to trigger the overview
- one right click followed by a long second one
- pressing the right and left click simultaneously
-middle click anywhere
- double middle click anywhere
This could unify user experience between mouse and touchpad.
Any thoughts ?
