Of course, it is not the official extension. This google chrome extension is developed by a guy named Zachary Allia. After installation you can see this extension icon sitting on the top right of your browser. Clicking it will not open a new tab, it will open a popup within the same window and display your Facebook News Feed.
Unique features of this extension include:
No need to go to Facebook.com to update your status, just do it by clicking the extension icon and typing your status message.
One thing i really like about this extension is its Instant Notifier. It immediately sends you notifications by showing a number on the icon, its not at all disturbing and intruding.
After clicking a notification, it will immediately show you that particular post to minimize unwanted interactions.
You can comment and like a post right from the popup quickly, without opening it up on Facebook.com.
Presently tagging your friends in posts is not supported but that feature will soon be added in the next update.
Jump to your Events tab, Photos tab, Messages tab quickly right from the popup.
Goto the original Facebook site easily by clicking the Full Site button shown in the popup.

A Blogger and a computer programmer who goes by the name Zane Claes has developed a nice handy extension for the Google Chrome browser. It is called as Start G+. Basically what the extension does is, it allows you to post to Facebook and Twitter directly from Google+.
You just have to authorize the extension from Google+ and then you are good to go.
Here are some of the top features of this extension:
Gather your Facebook and Twitter streams seamlessly into the Google+ stream. The stream includes all videos, photos and links which are normally shared on Facebook or Twitter.
Automatically share updates and post contents to Facebook and Twitter when shared on Google+. This makes your content visible on all three social networks simultaneously, therefore no need to waste time switching from Google+ to Facebook and vice versa.
The extension also adds a small Gmail notifier onto the top bar. Clicking it will reveal all your unread e-mail instantly.
ZDNet has brought to our light a very cute app which can be used after installing this application i.e. Convert Facebook to Google+. With this app you can easily sync all your photos to Google+ and share them with your Google+ friends!
