Google made a big splash with its new social network site, and these 10 add-ons will make Google+ even more useful and user-friendly
If you think the design of the main Google+ page has too much white space and is a little hard to read, or is just too plain for your tastes, this extension could be the fix for you. It sets the left and right columns in a light gray to help make the posts in the center column stand out better against their white backgrounds. Additionally, posts are more obviously separated from one another, each within their own frame.
It also adds a few tweaks to improve the user navigation. An interesting one rearranges the posts into a side-by-side format (as a vertically scrolling grid of three columns). We especially like how Google+ Ultimate relocates and embeds the four main function buttons of Google+ (Home, Photos, Profile, Circles) up into the black Google Bar.
Google+ Ultimate incorporates the notification functionality of another Google+ enhancement Chrome extension, Surplus, which we cover later in this slideshow.
