"Replies and more" and "Usability Boost" for Google+

Replies and more for Google+

Adds extra functionality to Google Plus. Currently just a reply button for each comment and a "Reply to Author" for each post.

This extension works via page scraping, so it might be a bit brittle. Report issues here:

It'll ask you for access to a few Google sites (this is required because this modifies content on any page that contains Google+ elements). Make sure you refresh any Google+ windows that you had open before installing.

Usability Boost for Google Plus™

This extension improves readability on Google+ and adds some useful features.

Design :
- small CSS changes that put the focus on the content, separating visually posts and comments, improving design on the profile page.
- post infos showing up on rollover only

Features :
- The notification bar stays at a fixed position on top so you'll never miss a notification again !
- Displays a direct link to mute post (very handy)
- Ability to star a post so that you can read it later !

Free Mind Map

FreeMind is a premier free mind-mapping software written in Java. The recent development has hopefully turned it into high productivity tool. We are proud that the operation and navigation of FreeMind is faster than that of MindManager because of one-click "fold / unfold" and "follow link" operations.

So you want to write a completely new metaphysics? Why don't you use FreeMind? You have a tool at hand that remarkably resembles the tray slips of Robert Pirsig, described in his sequel to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance called Lila. Do you want to refactor your essays in a similar way you would refactor software? Or do you want to keep personal knowledge base, which is easy to manage? Why don't you try FreeMind? Do you want to prioritize, know where you are, where you've been and where you are heading, as Stephen Covey would advise you? Have you tried FreeMind to keep track of all the things that are needed for that?
