Why are they weird? They're widely confirmed.

Maybe FF9 will close the gap...

It's Fx, not FF ("Fire Fox"?!). And: Confirmed? By whom? Studies? Want counter-studies?

Counter-studies would be nice.  :)
In any case, considering the current state of affair, it makes more sense to hypothesise that Chrome has a slightly better performance overall. Conversely, it's probably not that legitimate to unitarily affirm that chrome is not faster than Firefox.
But this isn't the subject of this thread.

I tried a few Google+ extensions and... well, let's say the best is probably yet to be seen.

It all depends on the actual website, I presume. The more Javascript is used, the better Firefox performs than Chrome. (And these days, almost everything is Javascript. Dumbass web "designers".)

Great, that's the end of the hype, I presume.

Plus Minus
g_plus_minus.png
by Aung Thiha

Plus Minus makes Google+ rock. It lets you select which Circles show up in your Google+ Stream, allows you to easily mark individual or all posts as read, offers a wide-screen view so you can see more content without scrolling, and loads more posts automatically as you scroll down.

Plus Minus is nice when you want to surf that circle of fluff and goofy junk and nothing else.

Replies and More for G+
https://chrome.googl...jhchgcjlfldjiepcfpea

Improve the G+ reply mechanism immensely by grabbing the Replies and More Google+ Chrome extension. The extension puts links throughout G+ that let you reply to the author of any post or comment with a single click -- and without all the "+"-typing hassle. This one actually allowed me to drop two other extensions since it did a better job.

G+ Stream Pause
https://chrome.googl...cjfcfcmkoeldfobapohe

This one works great, and I've no idea why Google doesn't include a simple function like this to start with. It pauses your stream with universal PAUSE/PLAY symbols on your toolbar. Now you can read a longer post, extended comments, or compose a comment yourself without new posts continuously bouncing your cursor point offscreen.
_____________________
CAVEAT: This extension pauses -- or rather freezes -- your entire stream "page," temporary disabling G+'s autopagination. Reactivate the stream and the "More Entries" bar at the bottom works again.
