The GNOME website has an Extensions section set up, which is currently in its Beta phase. It promises easy installation of extensions, and management of installed ones, through a web interface.
The site can be accessed here: https://extensions.gnome.org/
Gnome-shell extensions can be installed from the Gnome-shell extensions web page. The site is: https://extensions.gnome.org/
To install an extension click on the extension and then you will go a page describing the extension.
In that page you can see a slider switch. Turn on the slider if you want to install the extension. Then you will see a prompt to install the extension.
The installed extensions can be managed from https://extensions.gnome.org/local/
1. Go to the gnome-shell extensions page using a supported browser (that is not totally secured to anything running on or coming from the web).
Like the stock gnome-browser or a clean install of firefox should work as well. I sometimes had issues installing extensions using google-chrome or midori.
2. Filter by "Supported by: Current Version"
3. Click the toggle-Button of the Extension you want
4. A "install this extension"-question should pop up. Confirm.
(5.) In rare cases you need to reload the gnome-shell to make a new extension work without issues. (RARE!) - open the gnome-shell run dialogue (Alt+F2 ? - if not set check Alt+F2 doesn't display the Run Command Prompt in GNOME Shell), type in "r" without quotes and hit [Enter].
