The Compiz Grid Plug-In
By mkupfer on Dec 18, 2009
I tried Compiz shortly before it became the default in OpenSolaris, but I went back to Metacity because the fancy graphics plugins don't do much for me. But I found a plugin last month that I actually find useful: Grid. With a single gesture, I can put windows into any quadrant of the display, or two adjacent quadrants (e.g., top half of the display or left side of the display). I think it gives me the best of tiling and overlapping window management.
