In a lot of ways, the slab menu seems like a good idea. But it drives me nuts to have to click ‘More Applications’ to get to most of the stuff I use.
Sure, I could list ‘favorite applications,’ but if I make that menu too cramped, it defeats the purpose.
Once I click the button, there’s a new window which works fine, but it’s an irritation. I’d much rather ‘hover’ over it and have a traditional menu pop up, preferably still with the search box.
Is there any way to customize this behavior, or remove ‘slab’ in favor of traditional GNOME?
