Gnome 3.2 extensions

I have always been a fan of the clean desktop layout of Gnome 3.2
However, a lot of people complained that there were not enough settings to customize the gnome-shell (Remember the fuss about the missing "power-off" button...)
Some issues were resolved by the "advanced settings" app but the Gnome developers promised that there was a lot more to come in the form of extensions.

Today I stumbled across the dedicated site: Gnome Extensions

After a quick browse I added a CPU temperature extension and a network traffic one.
I also removed the accessibility icon and installed an extension to show the extensions in the overview (see screenshot below)  

All very nice features that work very well.

HowToGeek made a nice Top Ten
