Package: gnome-core
Version: 1:3.22+8
Severity: normal


gnome-shell currently encourages users to download extensions off the
internet, and forces a chromium plugin, always enabled by system-wide
/etc/chromium policy, to expose extension information to It also exposes a firefox plugin, which I have not

Such browser integration is a feature that I do not trust, I do not
need, and I do not want.

Finding myself unable to remove chrome-gnome-shell without breaking
gnome dependencies, I resorted to writing an equivs replacement for
chrome-gnome-shell[1], and my desktop is running perfectly, except that
if I go to I get a message inviting me to install
gnome shell integration, which is appropriate.

That the equivs package works so well, makes a pretty good case to me
that the chrome-gnome-shell should be brought in by a Recommends: rather
than a Depends:
