    Tiled scrollable window management for Gnome Shell

    Sorry, I should have explained more. It's not on the regular site, so you have to install from https://github.com/paperwm/PaperWM. It treats each desktop as an infinite horizontal scroll of windows, and automatically tiles them as such. Keyboard shortcuts can manipulate width and height, stack and unstack, move windows left and right or up and down, move windows between workspaces or monitors. Support in GNOME 40+ is still being worked on, and I'm not sure of the status, but it works great on 3.38.
