For the front-end to be end user suitable it should:

* List applications rather than packages
* Group them
* Provide some kind of rating system to show "best rated" or "most downloaded"
* Use the application icon if it has one
* Make use of the packagekit browser plugin for installation

But just letting the user search for random packages should not be the
goal imho.
