ICS questions

I have a couple of questions on how to do some things in ICS that I did in Gingerbread.

1) How do I do a search (Web, apps, etc.) without using a search widget since we no longer have a search widget?

2) We could do a voice command by holding down the search button before. How can we initiate that now?

3) I constantly held down the home button to see my list of recent apps to switch between a couple of them before, but I haven't been able to figure out how to do that in ICS yet. Anybody know how?

Thanks!

If you click the magnifying glass button on your phone it will open a search box that will search for anything on your phone.

On my phone I can hold the home button and it will pop up a list of recently used apps. There is also a task manager button.

I am using the ics stock launcher, not the Samsung touchwiz launcher.

This is NOT how the EVO 4G LTE works!

I'm trying to avoid taking up real estate with the widget. And I'd like a faster way to sort through the recent apps list. Any other suggestions?

Try pressing each of those 3 capacitive buttons on the bottom of your phone and see what they do :p

The recent apps button is slower and requires multiple swipes. Its useless compared to stock Android and older versions. Its easier to just have shortcuts in hone
