9 Most Useful Compiz Plugins

Filed under

Last time we wrote about all the useless plugins in Compiz. This time, we won't be bashing your favorite compositing window manager. Today, we'll be listing the most useful plugins Compiz can boast of.

Expo Plugin

This plugin activates the expo mode, which allows you to zoom out and see all workspaces at once. You can then rearrange windows between different workspaces to simplify workflow.
