Well, it requires two clicks ...
  • Launch the script (could be an assigned keystroke)
  • Choose the custom view from the script's menu.

That's it.

If your custom view description includes '--sh' (shortcut), it will jump straight to an OmniFocus view focused on the specified list of projects.

(and with the specified filters, groupings, and sorts).

What can I do with this window except for looking at it?

I never need to filter all the projects, containing 'omni' in the title. What I need is to have a perspective inside OF main window which shows 'Projects:Not stalled projects' so I can process/edit dozens of items.

That is exactly what you get. A focused perspective inside the OF main window, in which you can process dozens of items.

It sounds as if a couple of misunderstandings may have arisen. Things will make more sense if you download Where in OF and try running the saveable search which whpalmer4 suggested:
projects where (status is active) and number of available tasks > 1 --sh gr=folder st=next
This will take you straight to a projects view in OF itself (not a script-generated list like the one pasted in an earlier posting) which is grouped by folder, and has the Status filter set to Next Action.
