But I don't like when extensions become incompatible with the updating desktop. More than half of the extensions I used have been deactivated over time.

Gnome 3.6 fix that. You can update the extensions from their site automatically.

Generally it's all about add 3.6 version to a json file. Sometimes it's a bit harder, like a little javascript hacking. ;) In GS<3.6 you have to update them manually. Popular extensions are updated with each GS release and just works. Situation is much like in Firefox. Some extensions are maintained, some are not.
