    you know how in safari you can tap the statusbar to make it scroll to the top? well what if you could make the statusbar into a launcher of some sorts? like you go into settings and theres an option for status bar: scrolling or launcher. when its launcher theres a customizable app launcher that will launch a specified app on touch. you could start music in any app or maybe photos or whatever.

    that would be cool.

    Yes, this could be done. Effective, it would be like Dock though, in that there would be an everpresent window there (sunny.png for Dock). Also, this would cancel out the use of Safari's StatusBar.

    thats why I said there should be a settings page to allow you to switch between normal statusbar (with normal features) or modified one.

    and couldnt this launcher's sunny.png thing just be a completely alpha image the exact size and shape of the statusbar? or would that somehow remove the clock/batteryother things on the statusbar?

    I'm getting ahead of myself.
