Does anyone here use i3 window manager regularly with gnome-shell ?
How is the experience ?

It is not possible.

GNOME Shell has its internal window manager (mutter) and can't work with
another one.

Is 'not possible' is a bit harsh... rather: is not tested/supported
by any of the GNOME Team ;)

http://blog.hugochinchilla.net/2013/03/using-gnome-3-with-i3-window-manager/
gives some guide on how to configure it.

Obviously: any bug you encounter will be asked to be verified using
Mutter as Window Manager.

Hmm the article you are showing is not using GNOME 3 (at least, the
screenshot) but Unity.. I'm not convinced at all you can run GNOME Shell
without mutter.
