Icons in the Unity Launcher should have their own Lenses open in the Dash.

Registered by JWDinKC on 2012-01-19

Examples: Right clicking on Firefox should open a Lens in the Dash specific to FF with bookmarks, add-ons, open new instance, open in safe-mode, etc... Most icons in the Unity Launcher could open their own Lenses in the Dash. Nautilus just opens to the home folder when you left-click. I'd like to see right-clicking open a Nautilus Lens in the Dash with files, folders, functions, and available extensions. Libre-office could have a Lens that lists documents, projects, features, functions etc... So there you go - Icons in th Unity Launcher should have the option to open app-specific Lenses through the Dash. I figure as more Lenses for more apps get developed it will get tedious to assign keyboard shortcuts or to tab through all the those Lenses. At some point it will be a lot easier to access the Lens directly from the app's Icon in the Launcher.
