[Bug 1825756] [NEW] Window snapping to corners via mouse


Public bug reported:

Curretly, this feature simply does not exist, unless you count the buggy
keyboard implementation. Please add the feature to snap windows to the
bottom left and right and upper left and right corners via the mouse
alone. Currently, if you manually install compiz settings, you can map
the keyboard out to do this. Windows 10 and Ubuntu MATE and possibly
other distros/desktop environments allow this snap behavior. Why not
Ubuntu with GNOME?
