I’ve had a hard time keeping up with the conversations I want to keep up with on Google+ Things are much like Twitter in the early days, when we only had Twitter.com to view the stream. Google+ is an endless stream that updates and puts commented posts back to the top of the stream from time to time. But I am continually losing threads under the rush of the stream.
So this ONE extension has made a huge improvement in my Google+ experience. I thought I’d make a quick share about it.
It’s called G+Me and it only works on Google’s own Chrome browser. Here’s what the stream looks like once the extension is installed.
Violá! It’s like an email inbox. With comment counts in red.
Now I can track the discussions I want and ignore those pesky animated Gifs. Heck, you don’t even see them in this view.
So until the next Tweetdeck-like app comes along that allows us to manage our Google+ Circles as cascading columns, this will have to do.
