Google+ Chrome extensions: Surplus, Photo Zoom, Notification Count and more

Google Plus

Soon after I landed on Google+, I tried to find a Chrome extension for Google+.  Currently there is none released by Google.


Thanks to Dinu who recommended this.  Surplus is a simple yet powerful Google+ extension.  By default it adds the current web page to the share box ready for sharing.  So it’s a sharing tool for Google+.

Surplus - Chrome Extension for Google+

Besides, it notifies you (with optional sound) when you have a new notification, like somebody added you to his circle.  If you have multiple Google+ accounts, it can handle them properly.

Extended Share

Extended Share is a linkage between G+ and Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn.  With this extension installed, you find an option to share a stream to these social networks.  Your friends would find a link to the G+ stream.

Notification Count

Notification Count for Google+

The name “Notification Count” tells everything.  Its only function is to show the number of unread notifications on your Google+.  Simple but effective.

+Photo Zoom

Like many similar extensions for Facebook, +Photo Zoom enables auto zooming of photos, but in your Google+ Stream.  Just place the mouse cursor on photos, no need to click, an enlarged photo pops up immediately.  Perfect for previewing your friend’s montages.

Google+ Bar Color Changer

The default colour of the new Google sandbar is black.  For obvious reasons not all people like it.  Google+ Bar Color Changer changes the bar to other colours.
