Compiz Extras was the name given to a package of extra plugins for use with the original Compiz core packages.
These extra plugins provided extra usability and eye-candy features such as:
- Animation: animation effects for window events
- Benchmark: plugin to gauge performance
- Bs: brightness and saturation control
- Crashhandler: crash handling through gdb and recovery
- Inputzoom: Enhanced Zoom plugin
- Neg: Inverts color of window or desktop
- Put: moves windows using key binds
- Snow: Displays falling snow on the desktop
- Showdesktop: Hides window and shows desktop
- Trailfocus: unfocused windows fade with time
Most of these plugins and the ones from the Beryl Project can now be found as part of the Compiz Fusion package.
