G+me for Google Plus- easier to process a large stream of incoming posts and comments

This is a Google Chrome browser extension that enhances the Google+ web app to unlock the potential of its real-time updates and make it much easier to process a large stream of incoming posts and comments.

WARNING: be careful when installing other Google+ extensions.  Many if not most extensions use very inefficient methods of handling Google+'s live updates.  They may slow down Google+ in general and may interact badly with my extension's refresh model.

- *Notification status visible at all times*. Browser icon shows badge with number of new notifications.
- *Collapsible items*. As an alternative to muting, this is great if you're not really interested in seeing a post and all its comments right now, but you still want to get back to it at a later time and/or still want to get notifications.
- *Real-time comment count on collapsed items*. You will see either how many comments a post has or how many new ones you haven't seen yet.
- *List-mode option keeps at most one post displayed*. This turns the stream into a dashboard: in one screenful you can see activity on many posts at once and jump back and forth between multiple active comment streams.
- *Mouse-over instant post display*.  In list mode, hover the mouse over a collapsed item and see the entire post without clicking.
