There has been many gnome shell reviews lately, both positively and negatively. Some are worried about lost functionality and less configuration options. But gnome shell really pack a nice array of ‘not so widely discussed’ real capabilities which could make all these skeptics happy. One of these is the extension framework which could really make the gnome shell an awesome piece of software. Till now there wasn’t much to see/experience what these extensions could actually do apart from the gnome live page
But yesterday, a video updated to the YouTube shows what to expect from these extensions. It is a simpler extension wherein a screenshot application shows the countdown on screen before actually taking the screenshot. But of course, words aren’t enough to experience the beauty of the implementation.
See for yourself:
(The video itself do not have very good quality but is enough to see what is happening in there.)
