Google announced two Chrome extensions, which let you +1 any webpage or check your Google+ notifications when you're not in a Google app.

Google+, which launched without so much as search capability, is finally starting to integrate with Google's other services. The company announced two Chrome extensions, which let you +1 any webpage or check your Google+ notifications when you're not in a Google app. (Why those needed to be separate apps is beyond us.) More interesting, though, is the new YouTube integration -- there's a small YouTube button in Google+ that launches a Pandora-style playlist of whatever kind of videos you want to watch, and makes it easy to share videos and playlists with your Circles as well. The feature's not available to everyone yet, but Google's rolling it out now and says this is the beginning of "bringing Google to Google+." We hope they mean it.
