9 Most Useful Compiz Plugins

Filed under
Software

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. If you're a seasoned multitasker and happen to use virtual desktops a lot, then this plugin is an essential companion. Ubuntu includes the plugin enabled by default. Press Super+S to get a bird's eye view of all your desktops.
