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.
Sharing and Tagging
Google+1 – Add the +1 to your Chrome address bar so you can +1 from anywhere
Extended Share for GooglePlus – Share Google+ posts to Twitter/Facebook, etc.
G+ Notifier - Adds a Notification count in your browser status bar
Surplus - Google+ Features in your Chrome Toolbar including Notifier and account switcher
- Post or respond from within the popup
- Desktop Notifications
- Notification sounds
- Switch between multiple Google accounts
Hide the Google+ Notifier count - For when you want to get some other things done in life, and not know Google+ is waiting for you!
Media and Photos
+Photo zoom - Hover over pictures in your G+ Stream to zoom them to larger size!
Google+ Helper - Tweet and event Translate posts in your streams!
Google+ CSS Tricks – Various Optimizations. Read the notes on the Extension page though
Google+ Enhancer – Add more notifications to the Google StatusBar
Then there is the ones which I don’t think are full extensions on the marketplace, so use on your own accord.
