4. Notification Count for Google Plus

This extension shows the number of new notifications you have received on your Google+ on the top navigational bar without having to open the Google+ account. When you click on the notification button, it actually takes you to your account.

5. +Everything

Right now your Google+ notifications bar only shows up when your on Gmail, Docs, Reader, or any other Google app. +Everything is a great extension for Chrome that lets you add that bar to the top of all websites you visit.

6. Replies and more for Google+

Adds extra functionality to Google Plus:

  • Reply and Reply to Author links for easy +mentions of other users
  • Badges the favicon with a number when you have new messages
  • Ctrl+Enter and Shift+Enter submit a comment or post
  • "M" key mutes a post
  • Header bar floats down as you scroll
  • Adds a dropdown next to share with additional sharing options (Twitter/Facebook/Email)

Extra functionality (off by default):

  • Chime on new notifications
  • Desktop notifications when you have new messages

This extension works via page scraping, so it might be a bit brittle.

7. Plus One Anything

With this extension you are given the ability to +1 almost any webpage.

This extension is perfect for Google+ since it lets you share any page with your friends without waiting for the webmaster of the page to add the +1 button!

Limitations: Private pages will not work. You will receive a red "!" icon when you try to +1 the page.
