Bug Description

Active applications in Unity currently don't group at one place and they are scattered at various spots in the launcher, even in the icons that are folded in accordion style. This is a real pain because we should know what applications are currently active in one glance. Since we cannot see the entire launcher at one go, specially in large monitors, it takes quite a effort to spot and open apps that are active. It get worse when apps are pinned way at the bottom as they remain folded even when they are active. Hope you get the idea.

The solution would to group them at top or at a place where active apps can be quickly spotted.

Scrrenshots attached.

If you want to see all your open applications at once shouldn't you use expose instead?

Only maximized windows would be shown in that case.
