dock for Gnome ShellIf there’s one aspect of Gnome Shell that many users don’t like it’s the inability to switch between windows as quickly as that on a traditional desktop using a taskbar or dock.

With the following extension by a developer called Torb you can easily add a dock-like bar to the right-side of your screen that gives you this, allowing you to swap between windows faster than by going to the ‘App Well’ view in Overview mode.
