Top 6 Chrome Extensions for Google Plus

Here is the list of most popular Google Chrome Extensions for Google Plus. Let me know if you have an extension or two that should have made it to this list.

1. Google +1 Button (by Google)

+1 and share a web page, anywhere you go on the web. This extension puts a +1 button on your toolbar to make it easy to share webpages to Google Plus. Most of the websites have implemented the Google+1 button, but if you are on one without the +1 button, this will come handy.

2. Google+ Notifications (by Google)

The second extension in our list is also by Google. Plus notifications are available from any Google product page (Search, Gmail, and even Chrome’s new tab page). But this extension brings you alert when you are outside the Google-land.

Whenever you have a new notification (for example, when someone adds you to a circle or shares a post with you), the extension button will turn red and show you how many updates are waiting for you.

    Number 5 should be replaced with Hover Zoom. Hover Zoom provides the functionality of this extension, plus allows the same functionality on many, many other websites like IMDB and Google Images. It also has a short cut key “shift + s” to save the largest file size available to your hard drive. Excellent extension and highly recommended. Hope this help ! You can find Hover Zoom in the Chrome Store.

    Number 4 is apparently broken : does not propose any FB sharing option. Comments in the Store go from positive to negative.
    So Google might have change something breaking the app.
