Is it possible to modify the Unity switcher theme and behavior? Namely: no 3D "rolling" and no icon borders.

enter image description here

I love the gnome-shell's, but unity is better for me.

Are there any 3rd party switchers? I need it to group my apps (like both Unity and GNOME-Shell do) and that's pretty much it.

  • There's no way to customize it. The theme's a bit better in 13.04 though.

You can install some other switcher using ccsm, by now I think that there is not much that you can change with unity default switcher, except some small theming options. I tried to find switcher options in theme (I tested Adwaita and Radiance), but no success. I couldn't find css attributes to change.
