[Bug 839181] Re: Chromium/Chrome notification bubbles don't switch workspaces


** Description changed:

  chromium/Chrome have onscreen notification icons for various apps (think
  irccloud.com). The notification bubbles typically are either for pure
  notification or actioning.
  When you click on the notification bubbles, chromium/Chrome brings the
  browser into focus and switches to the tab in question. This makes sense
  since I, as the user, actively clicked on the bubble indicating that I
  want to do something with that notification.
  However, in Unity when you are working in a different workspace, instead
  of switching to the browser it wiggles the application icon in the
  launcher. I would have expected it to switch me to the browser. Now,
  intead of simply clicking on the bubble to get to the web app in
  question, I need to click on the bubble, see the application wiggle in
  the launcher, click on the launcher icon to switch workspaces and then
  the tab has focus.

+ ----------------------------------
+ Desired Solution:

+ - If the requested Chromium window and tab is not on the current workspace, the user should be shifted to the workspace where the window resides with the relevant window and tab focused.
