I was looking through the settings in Compiz and I found this:

Widget Layer

I have no idea what it does as I have pressed F9 and it just made my screen dim (the kind you get when Ubuntu isn't responding), but now I want to know how to use it properly.

Anyone know?

The Widget Layer plugin provides functionality to show and hide your widgets at will. You can define what windows are widgets and press a key / mouse button or screen edge to show them.

I didn't understand well what exactly does this plugin until I wasn't in Behaviour tab to add a new widget window. I grabbed, for example, my gnome-terminal window and then I was played with F9 key to see what is happening.
