The default launcher adds the ability to resize, scroll, or flick widgets. The only thing the default is only missing animations in widgets (like android Sense flip clock or Windows 6.5 Sense weather animation in the flip clock).
I am happy to be able to finally use the default launcher on my phone.
I'd like to mention I just turned off signature and avatars and the thread is much easier to read. Now if I could only turn off locations, device lists, and that way too large tip this button. All those one line posts wouldn't take up so much space.
