 this would be a huge improvement in usability. Some of the lingering
effects of not using a popup will still be apparent, like the switcher
acting like a task to the quick switcher (or whatever the lower right icon
is called) and the fact that it wouldn't drop out of sight on clicking on
the switcher icon again or somewhere else.

how do you get this switcher to appear using a finger? I only see it as the
result of hitting that tiny lower left corner with a stylus.
