Tuning GNOME 3

Filed under

Since its introduction, GNOME 3 has received a fair amount of criticism, as not everyone likes its new operating concepts. In recent months, a wide variety of extensions for the GNOME shell have popped up that add individual settings or GNOME 2 functions to GNOME 3, similar to how extensions work in Firefox and Thunderbird. The web site, launched by the GNOME Project developers in early December, is collecting these extensions to enable easy installation, just as does for Mozilla's applications.


The relatively simple web site, with a big red and white "Alpha!" stamp in the title, included almost 30 extensions shortly after it was launched; that figure jumped to 60 by mid-December and now stands at around 100. Users can comment on and rate each of the extensions; however, a search function and the ability to sort by the most popular extensions or extension categories have yet to be added to the site.

Each extension has its own page with a short description.
