I hear you on that. I would love to have the app drawer on the bottom. I also hate the app switcher and the lack of clear all notifications. IMO it does seem to run a little better then GB and overall am liking it better more then I thought.

First, this area of the screen is not called "honeybar" ,its the system bar. Honeybar is a 3rd party applications.
Second, I must be missing something, isn't exactly what the system bar does on the flyer when you touch the right corner?

+1

As in I thought that looked just like stock Honeycomb right corner touch.

These are my major gripes with the bar. I would love if these could be addressed in an app or rom.

-When notifications appear, instead of occupying the space next to the time and battery indicator, they cover it up. This makes the settings popup unclickable.
-Notifications can't be "cleared all"
-The background task button is no more useful than holding the home button in GB
-The settings popup can't be customized
-CM7 has an option to hold the back button to kill the current process. The same type of behavior would be indispensable when an app freezes.

I can't agree about the background task button. It is much more effective for me.then long pressing home on gb. I can switch through three apps before you could switch one.

i agree with the name mistake but i was toking bout different thing... touchwiz has shortcut button in center of system bar and i think that is way better than wasting space without anything... jus check out wizzbar or see some video of "touchwiz UI on HC"
