Alternate Tab extension than are using the default behavior

It's worth noting that this particular extension does very little - it simply changes the default behavior of some shortcuts. So if you are implying here that something like the window switcher (in contrast to the default app switcher) should be built-in and not require any extensions - that's already the case.

You can reconfigure the <alt>tab/<super>tab keybindings using
  gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-applications '[]'
  gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-windows '["<Alt>Tab","<Super>Tab"]'
(or by clicking around in the appropriate section in gnome-control-center ...)
