Comment 0 for bug 839181

chromium/Chrome have onscreen notification icons for various apps (think irccloud.com). The notification bubbles typically are either for pure notification or actioning.

When you click on the notification bubbles, chromium/Chrome brings the browser into focus and switches to the tab in question. This makes sense since I, as the user, actively clicked on the bubble indicating that I want to do something with that notification.

However, in Unity when you are working in a different workspace, instead of switching to the browser it wiggles the application icon in the launcher. I would have expected it to switch me to the browser. Now, intead of simply clicking on the bubble to get to the web app in question, I need to click on the bubble, see the application wiggle in the launcher, click on the launcher icon to switch workspaces and then the tab has focus.
