Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

In Unity (and not only, because DockBarX, Plank and Cairo Dock also support Unity quicklists), some applications use "quicklists" which allow you to access common tasks for those applications.

But not all applications have quicklists and if you want to add your own or create some custom launchers with quicklists, QLE Unity Quicklist Editor can make that very easy.
