Firefox under GNOME Shell looks and feels a little out of place. Thankfully there a couple of extensions that vastly improve its appearance.
The appearance of Nautilus, System Settings and several other GNOME 3 applications in Ubuntu 13.10 has been improved in a recent update.
Over in the development land of Ubuntu 12.10, a new version of the 'new Nautilus' has landed - bringing with it yet another feature removal. And so the question that is now being asked by developers and users alike is: Should Ubuntu revert to an older version of Nautilus to keep this feature, and the many others hacked out?

The 2011 Linux Journal Reader's Choice Poll has named Ubuntu the best Linux distribution - for the 7th year in a row! The American magazine, which recently switched to digital-only distribution, polled its readers in over 30 categories.
It's been almost a week since GNOME launched a public alpha of their handy 'extensions' site - which makes adding extra functionality to the GNOME-Shell desktop a wheeze. We highlighted five handy extensions before the weekend, but those were taken from the handful of extensions that were uploaded at the time. Since then even more have been added.
