Usually when i try to reach a back button on my browser, I end up with a launcher popping over it. So instead of simply pushing "back" button I have to deal with a launcher.
I think this is unity's launcher design problem. Should I file a bug or what?

I had the same "problem" which I fixed by installing CCSM (CompizConfig Settings Manager) and setting in the Ubuntu Unity Plugin the option Hide Launcher to NEVER. This way when the browser opens the left side of it will be right next to the launcher and not on top or below of it so you can see both, the launcher buttons and the browser buttons.

There is no need to approach the edge slowly, not have the buttons in their typical place or not have it maximize since this are not solutions to the confusion between both elements.

After changing the option in the Unity Plugin, at least in my case I had to reboot to take effect. Just in case it happens to you. You safe with this some valuable seconds when browsing and want to check something quickly.

At the end it should look like this:

See how the browser's left limit is the actual launcher and not the resolution border.
