Plugins page feedback

The page at http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/plugins/plugins.html is a good start,
but at first glance, it looks like there are only 5 plugins for IDEA. I suggest
adding heading "Featured Plugins" and a big link to "More plugins..." which
links to intellij page.

Also, the plugin settings feature list is silly and I don't think it will help
anyone, it will almost only confuse people.

Also, maybe that ugly screen shot will convince you guys to brush up the UI :)
Plugins could be listed more like Add/Remove Programs on Windows, or like
profiles in Backup on OSX, instead of cramming that mostly useless information
into those columns.

Hehe, that's what I thought as well. That screenshot looks extremely ugly and absolutely
not like a "convenient UI" as it's advertised. To its defense, it looks a lot better if
properly resized, but that seems to be a limitation of the website layout.

My suggestion: display a downsampled screenshot of the dialog which is properly resized to
be able to actually read the plugin names and pop up the actual-size image when clicking
on it.
