No sooner has Google announced its Facebook-killing Google+ social platform and we’re already seeing developers at work creating tools to make the online sharing experience just that little bit easier.

Surplus is an extension for Google Chrome, allowing users to easily access their Google+ notifications and compose new posts from anywhere on the Web. So, this extension lets you read, comment and share without having to be on the Google domain.

You can post or respond from within a little pop-up, receiving notifications on your desktop, including sounds and you can even switch between several Google accounts.


This is a really neat extension that makes sharing in Google+ much easier.
