Google+ Extensions on Chrome

Geek Tip: Get Gmail Notifications in Google+

One of the cool features coming with Google+ is the quick post and notification box that lets you see followers and comment notifications in Gmail, Docs, Picasa, and Reader screens. It's always in the top right-hand corner of your screen. Wouldn't it be nice to also see incoming Gmail messages in this fashion as well? Never fear Googlites: Native Gmail For Google+ allows you to get a second notification box to see when you have incoming emails in your inbox.

More than just a notification box, you can see each new message and it's title. And by clicking on the message within the pop-up, you can also see the first few sentences of the text body. To see the message in its entirety, just click the title link to head straight to your Gmail inbox. It's a quick and easy download and best of all — it's free!
