    I'm using a few GNOME Shell extensions on a daily basis. However I'm not acquainted with the internal working - is it like similar to Chrome/Firefox web extensions, with a well-defined API? I also wonder about the security implications - IIUC extensions generally have access to everything the shell has access to. This makes it possible for a nefarious extension to steal credentials etc. Is there some 'permission' model for GNOME Shell extensions?
    It works more like the old Firefox extension model unlike the current one ie) Extensions are essentially unrestricted and that makes them quite powerful. The flip-side is that shell changes can break it
