You can create shortcuts to the applications to the desktop.
The good point is that besides applications you can have there
also other stuff like URLs, applets...

I.e. when no windows are open, instead of doing:
1. tap to task launcher icon
2. tap "More..."
3. Pan down
4. Tap to start app

You just tap to the application icon on desktop.

(When you have windows open and you're not on desktop, it doesn't save
quite as many taps, but is still slightly more convenient.)

Just long press on empty Desktop area and select "Add shortcut"
from the Desktop menu.  URL shortcuts you can add to desktop from
the Browser (it asks where you want the bookmark to be added,
bookmarks list or desktop).

Atlas is extension used by Maps (Maps uses browser engine).
