Bug Description

Here's a request for improvement. I find it hard to visually discern what application Alt-Tab switcher will switch to if I were to let go the key combo. The focus moves from leftish (not fully left since the left-most icon is "Show Desktop") further to the right as Alt-Tab is pressed repeatedly. I would suggest to always keep the focus in the middle of the screen and instead move the app icons in a visual stream beneath it. That way, it is easier for the user to know where to focus attention and operate unity as desired more quickly and efficiently.
