Gnome Not even GNOME itself could ignore the GNOME 3 criticism for much longer. "As part of the planning for the DropOrFixFallbackMode feature, we've decided that we will compile a list of supported gnome-shell extensions. This will be a small list, focused on just bringing back some central 'classic' UX elements: classic alt tab, task bar, min/max buttons, main menu. To ensure that these extensions keep working, we will release them as a tarball, just like any other module."

I don't like the workspace placement either, but a few suggestions will cut down the number of actions easily
1) you don't really need to click the activity button, just hit the very corner with the pointer or
2) hit the super ( windows) key to open the overview, and then
3) you don't need to click on the search box, just start typing right away and press enter to launch the first result, or use cursor keys/ mouse to select one of the filtered items
So it's basically like gnome-do for launching ( hit a key, start typing, press enter ), and a single click to launch from your favorite apps or to select a window exposé-like.
I actually find that quite good, just don't get me started on the alt-tab navigation. Now that's clumsy.
