When you swipe up from the home button in Jelly Bean you get a cute semicircle with a Google Now shortcut on top. This circle shape makes it perfect for adding other shortcuts.

For instance, you could have the Gmail icon on the left side of the circle and the Chrome icon on the right side.

Is there any way to get this functionality (different launcher, some rooted app, different ROM)?
