How to view Google+ notifications in the Chrome toolbar

Want a quick way to view your Google+ notifications, directly from your Chrome browser toolbar? Try this Chrome extension.

Joining Google's growing list of Chrome toolbar buttons is the Google+ Notifications extension. With it, you can view your Google+ notifications, directly from your Chrome toolbar.

The Google+ Notifications extension for the Chrome browser puts a notification button on your toolbar with a count of unread updates. Clicking on the button brings up a list of recent notifications. You can also add comments, reply, or manage recent circle activity, right from the notification list.
