Bug Description

I think it would be really useful if synapse could be used for switching windows. I would like to be able to search through window titles and press enter to switch to that window. Also, usual functionality like having a 'Windows' entry alongside 'Applications', 'Audio' etc. and pressing the down button to see all windows would be good. The 'helper' text could say "Switch to $WINDOW_TITLE" .

Hi, somehow a duplicate of https://bugs.launchpad.net/synapse-project/+bug/718049 isn't it?

mocked up an initial implementation in the branch linked to this bug. Basic functionality (searching for windows and focussing them, based on wmctrl) works.

The icons shown could use some work.
