If you’re one of the lucky few that’s currently using Google+, you know that the new social networking site snuck into all your favourite Google apps like Gmail, Docs, and Calendar, by embedding itself in the upper right corner of your screen.
If you want quick and easy access to Google+ no matter where you are on the web, download the aptly named Surplus, a Chrome extension that makes it simple to update your status and check your notifications.
It sits right next to your URL bar (like your other extensions). As an extra bonus, Surplus can pop up desktop notifications and/or play sounds when someone contacts you on Google+.
