Below is a list of known Chrome browser extensions to enhance your Google+ experience.  It’s amazing how people in the community are coming out of the woodwork to really improve what already is shaping up to be a great service.  I’ll update the list as I find new ones.

This was an original list I had posted on my Google plus stream, but I thought I would cross post it here.
