so there is no way for me to get this extension on my computer?

I am sorry, but there is not a way for it to work on Zorin OS 16.3. That extension is currently still in Experimental release.

Gnome Extensions are kind of hit and miss. Those that used to work just fine, broke with the Gnome 4+ update. Some get updated to work, some don't.
While there are many great extensions out there and a lot of benefits to them, one of the downsides is that your desktop environment and favorite features end up dependent on several different independent developers that may lose interest, fall over dead, move on to other projects...

In accepting Extensions, you must also accept the risk they bring, too.
