Bug Description

The trash can icon (to delete entries in Favorites) in the launcher is not adequate as metaphor since your can't recover the item you've just thrown wich is the expected behaviour of a trash can.

Maybe something like a cross would be more appropriate

Or maybe this icon is not needed since the contextual menu allow to suppress an item

Remove Favourite was removed, right-click is used instead, for now.

This sounds like the behaviour of the Dell Mini 9 ubuntu-customed interface (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_TWgeucLxjj0/SbnFkL9ZAeI/AAAAAAAABZ8/1gtSZH2JpKs/s1600-h/lanceur_edition_raccourci.png) and i think it works pretty well indeed
