[via John Walkenbach]


Here's one called Usability Boost for Google Plus:
"It's small CSS changes that put the focus on the content, separating visually posts and comments."

It's a subtle change, but it definitely improves readability.

Liquid G+ userstyle: http://userstyles.org/styles/50187/liquid-g




And some goodies from Micah Whittman (Yes, he is a DC member, so if you like his stuff, you can easily show your support) Micah is legendary for his enhancements to Friendfeed, and he has been busy enhancing our experiences on G+ too!

http://wittman.org/google-plus-extensions/

GooglePlusPlus User Mute - The googleplusplus_user_mute userscript / extension for Google+ (aka Google Plus aka G+) mutes all posts by specific users. Click MUTE USER link next to the Public/Limited status. Once muted, a placeholder for each post appears with {User Name} UNMUTE, which if clicked will stop muting that particular user.

GooglePlusPlus Default Circle - The googleplusplus_default_circle userscript / extension for Google Plus (aka Google+ aka G+) adds a star next to each circle stream name. The star can be clicked to set or unset one circle stream as your default. When a default is set, going to the Stream view (which is an aggregate of all your circles) you automatically get redirected to your default stream.

GooglePlusPlus Hide Images - googleplusplus_hide_images is a user script for Google Plus (aka Google+ aka G+) that adds a button under each Google Plus post image to hide it (toggle show / hide). Hides the image on original post and all shared posts. Tired of an animated GIF that keeps getting shared over and over in different posts? – hide it once an forget about it.

GooglePlusPlus Hide Comments - The googleplusplus_hide_comments userscript for Google Plus adds a Hide Comments or Show Comments link on each post; this feature is sticky (the hidden or shown state is recorded in the browser’s local storage).

GooglePlusPlus Search With Google - googleplusplus_search_with_google is a user script for Google Plus (aka Google+ aka G+) that toggles the built-in search input Find People with another option: Search Google Plus with the Google search engine using the site: filter.

GooglePlusPlus Hide Sidebars - The googleplusplus_hide_sidebars is a user script for Google Plus (aka Google+ aka G+) that adds a feature to hide/show left and right side bars, and makes the main content wider. This feature is sticky and will show either a Hide Sidebars link or Show Sidebars link.

No joy on the Google+Facebook thing. After installing it and clicking on the Facebook icon, I get this message:

Important Notice
Facebook is no longer enabling communication between Google Plus and Facebook. We are currently trying to contact Facebook to get everything back as it was. Please be patient with our efforts. We hope to be up and running again soon,

That crossrider stuff is considered malware. (Google+Twitter and Google+Facebook)

They change your default search engine without asking and tamper with your email, possibly giving the developer full access to the content of your email messages.

'Start G+' Adds a Gmail inbox notifier, which you can disable.
Warnings are posted at the app store of what it can access.
You can disable Facebook and Twitter functions as well.
But those are the point of the extension.
It also can access Picasa Web and the developer for updates.
The Beta does not auto update though.

He keeps developing it, so I think it will be a good one, imo.
Personally I like to keep them separate-Google+ and Facebook.
I just tested it to see if it works and it still does.

There are dozens of articles on how to use Google+ for beginners. Finally, Mashable's Stephanie Buck takes it to the next level. She's interviewed some very serious "power users" about how they use Google+ circles for sourcing, learning, deeper interaction, filtering, personal memos, organizing, and preparing for the future. A well-written piece. Coming soon: Venn Diagram circles!

7 Ways Google+ Users Are Getting More Out of Their Circles
http://mashable.com/2011/...7/26/google-plus-circles/

"We've talked to users who have devised clever ways to use Google+ circles. Here they share their best practices so you can learn from their early mistakes and successes."
__________________________
*I had already heard about creating a circle and adding only yourself to it to keep time-stamped notes with. Good idea!

G+me for Google Plus
https://chrome.google.com...hgpddmlnhajiacfakhlilbicp
_________________________
via Softpedia:
[It's] a toolbar icon shows G+ notifications in real-time. This means that users don't need to be on Google-related tabs to see if there's anything new happening on G+. The notifications are now visible everywhere. However, the central feature of this extension is that its ability to collapse read posts while remembering their last state for future sessions. Additionally, if users want to keep the posts expanded but not see all the associated comments, G+me gives them the option to hide the comment stream. The collapsed comments bar will continue to show and update the comment number at the end and if a new one is posted, hovering the mouse pointer over the comment number will display a pop-up with the content. Similarly, hovering the mouse pointer over a collapsed post will display a fully-functional preview of its extended version. Users can also opt for list-mode view which keeps all posts collapsed by default and allows a single one to be extended at a time.
_______________________
NOTE: This extension works best if you're trying to keep up with LOTS of people inside a circle. Otherwise, revise your circles.

Meh, most Google+ extensions are useless for us Firefox users anyway.
But what about this? (Userscript, works with Greasemonkey, actually rocks. Too bad I hate Google.)
