I am using Unity, I can't handle multiple instances of the same app in an efficient way like gnome.
- What's the best way to handle multiple instances of the same application and keep being productive?
I usually have a browser (Firefox), at least two tabbed terminals side-by-side (plus extra terminals with random stuff), and usually lots of open PDFs. Everything is two clicks and one long mouse movement further away.
Firefox's Downloads windows opens: I feel it "gets in the way" of quickly switching to Firefox.
I had exactly the same problem on Gnome Shell. But then I started looking at extensions.gnome.org and found a few extensions that add "docks" to the top-bar of gnome, so I can quickly switch between apps with a single click.
- Are there similar extensions to Unity?
- Is there any way to un-group all the instances?
One of the best reasons to use Unity is that it saves some screen space, so I do not want to use tint2 or gnome-panel.
