I like the idea of _javascript_ based plugins like in Firefox. I think that could become the killer feature of Gnome3. Of course Gnome3 is far from ready now. But is has a lot of potential. Potential discoverable by the user.

The killer feature is GObject and GObject introspection.  We've had that for a number of years, but it is now front and center.


Why GObject and GObject introspection?

I look at it from a user's, you from a developer's perspective.

Well, plugin development is a developer feature that translates to cool plugins for users.  But GObject provides the mechanism for that plugin development.  If you have a library written in GObject it will be accessible from the extensions system.
