Google+ Web App – Adds Google+ to Chrome’s New Tab

Google+ aka Google Plus has become widely popular in just a couple of weeks since its launch. Larry Page recently announced that Google+ has now over 10 million users which are rapidly increasing every single day. Now if you’re using Google+ on Chrome browser and want a cool and faster shortcut to access it, then check our creation below.

We’ve created a Google+ Web App for Chrome which is preferably a bookmark like most other web apps, that lets you simply access Google+ anytime in a click. Google+ icon is always visible when you open a new tab page in Google Chrome. You can even Pin it to Tabs bar or Pin Google+ to Windows 7 taskbar easily using the app settings.

Unfortunately, I was unable to upload the app to Chrome Web Store because of some guidelines but still it is pretty simple to install and uninstall. To install the app, just right-click the download link below (googleplus_app.crx), select ‘Save link as’ and save the file to your desktop. Now open the file from your desktop (open with Chrome) and select Continue. Click on the Install button and that’s it!

    But whats the advantage of this “App” its just a link to google+, isn’t it? Same with the rest of the apps.. i rather stick with the “old” Most visited part of the “new tab” tab.
