Rectangle- free and open source.

Also, if you want window snapping similar to Windows, check out Rectangle. There's a bunch of mac utilities out there and I've been using Macs since I was like 4 years old in 2003 and used these random utilties for almost 20 years now so there's probably a couple crucial ones I'm forgetting.
Is there a way to turn this off? or move it? or something. every time I go to switch a tab it pops up and moves my whole screen and it’s infuriating

If you install Rectangle, you can snap windows to fill the screen without maximising them.

Actually, try Rectangle it's free unlike Magnet. I am not paying for basic window manger that should come built in the OS!11 projects | reddit.com/r/mac | 21 Nov 2021
By the way, to get snapping, I recommend everyone try Rectangle (Free, Open Source).

From macOS to Arch Linux

only use Homebrew for ‘Casks’ (GUI .apps)— `brew cask` subcommand
Nix or pkgsrc for reliable management of CLI tools (both, if you want to try Nix but want an escape hatch)
don't forget to install GNU coreutils, grep, find, and bash. (BSD coreutils are weird and anemic if you're used to GNU. macOS bash is ancient, etc.)
disable cursor acceleration (barely works, but it's the only thing that works): https://plentycom.jp/en/cursorsense/index.html

Tips for developers switching from Windows to Mac
5 projects | dev.to | 1 Nov 2021
ConEmu was my go-to terminal on Windows and so I was pretty bummed out when I realised that it wasn't supported on Mac. After asking some folks on my team, they suggested iTerm2 and I must admit it's equally fantastic.
A good python library to replace libtcod for terminal play?

iterm2, gnome terminal, xterm, Konsole, macos Terminal, powershell, command, etc.. these all provide a common API which we normally use curses to interface with. But all of them basically reach into something lower level (opengl, vulkan, directx, etc.) to render the text, which ultimately is still pixels on a screen.

iTerm2 is excellent. Along with it, you should get Zsh and OhMyZsh.

Gosh, I don't know if I could live without iTerm2, because it's window and session management is leagues above the normal OSX Terminal. This is always the first thing that I install on any Macbook that I know I'll be using, because I just like the feel, customization, and mobility that iTerm provides over native Terminal. Check out their Features page to see what the fuss is about, but the nice multi-pane/multi-tab controls are enough to justify it's usage to me.

At simplest I increase the zoom level of windows to about 125-150% depending on how they look. This is generally only possible with browser windows or Electron-based applications (which I typically dislike, but in this case brings a positive). With other applications it can be a mix of using the macOS screen zoom, or just not having a very readable interface. Fortunately the main applications I show are browser windows, Visual Studio Code (Electron-based), and iTerm, which is highly customisable, and I have a profile specifically designed for live-streaming (I should release that 🤔) that increases font size, removes background transparency, and makes things clearer for people to read.
Leaving Ubuntu for Mac (Probably) - A rant
3 projects | reddit.com/r/mac | 19 Sep 2021
Be aware the you will NOT have a full command line experience like you are used to on Ubuntu and it's ilk. You'll have zsh (bash descendent) but there's a lot missing so be prepared to rebuild most of that. The terminal is a mess. First two things to install are iterm which is a really nice terminal (I mean really nice - better than anything on Linux) and brew which is your are apt-get (inferior) stand in.

Assuming everything you need for college will run on it, you should be fine. Besides a couple quirks like Cmd+Q quits programs instead of just closing the window, it should be rather intuitive. The builtin terminal is fine and roughly-familiar if you're used that it in linux. You'll probably want to look into a package manager like brew, macports, or nix. iTerm2 is a fancier replacement for the default Terminal app, but I've found myself just fine with the one macOS provides. Docker usually runs fine if you need to pop a quick linux-y environment and spin up something like postgres or redis.
