It’s been several months now and I’m really enjoying my time on Google+. One thing that has been making the experience all the more enjoyable is the use of the following extensions in the Chrome browser. The following extensions in some cases improve on the user interface, integrate my activity with other social media sites or just make accessing content easier. The following extensions are definitely worth checking out and possibly reason enough to use Chrome even more than Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer.
+Photo Zoom – Allows you to mouse over an image thumbnail and zoom in and out with the motion of your mouse. Saves a click and speeds up browsing time.
Extended Share – Expands adds a “Share on” options under each Google+ entry to quickly share the post on Twitter, Facebook, Linked In and many other sites.
Plus Minus – My favorite feature of this plugin is that it loads more posts automatically as you scroll down, but it does a lot more including designate which Circles show up in your Google+ Stream, mark individual or all posts as read, and more.
Replies and more – Adds a link under each post to “Reply to Author”. This is a huge timesaver even for a fast typist. I use this functionality all the time. The extension does a lot more so check out the extension page.
SGPlus – Is is well… awesome! This is the single best plugin of the bunch as it allows you to use Google+ as a hub to Facebook and Twitter activity. I don’t pull in my feeds from Facebook and Twitter even though I could, but I really like that I can post content in one place and have it appear on Facebook, Twitter and Google+. It’s a huge timesaver. There is tons of documentation on this plugin and they’ve made incredible improvements with it since it was first released.
If you have a favorite Chrome extension that makes your Google+ experience better share it in the comments.
