5. Internet Radio
This is a rather snazzy shell extension that lets you listen to internet radio streams with the minimum of fuss and bother. It’s definitely our favorite multimedia extension by a country mile.
The configure button lets you turn on title notifications, title notifications in the panel, play/stop media keys, volume adjustment slider in the menu, and enable it as a search provider. The playlist button lets you define which streams to show, edit stream information, delete streams, and play streams. Add new streams by clicking the + button. The latter option lets you show radio stations as search results in the GNOME overview.
The built-in radio directory radio-browser is a real time-saver. Fab! If you like listening to radio on your computer, you’ll love this extension!
Like Dash to Dock, this extension restores another one of the traditional metaphors to your GNOME experience. Window List displays a window list at the bottom of the screen. It’s a simple way of making your GNOME desktop feel more comfortable if you’re coming from a Windows background.
The extension lets you configure the window grouping. Choose between new grouping windows, group windows when space is limited, or always group windows. There’s also the option to show the window list on all monitors, or a single monitor.
This extension is part of Classic Mode and is officially supported by GNOME.
7. Custom Hot Corners – Extended
This extension offers a huge collection of actions that allows you navigate and control the GNOME Shell environment and windows and launch applications and scripts not only through the corners and edges of your monitors, but also using the custom keyboard shortcuts.
8. Mpris Indicator Button
This is one extension any music fan will want to install on their GNOME desktop.
It’s a very useful, well designed, and full featured MPRIS indicator. Sweet and simple!
