G+Me adds the critical features that Google forgot in Google+

We've been waiting for a tool to help throttle all the noisy goodness that Google+ has become, and today it arrived in the form of a Google Chrome extension called G+Me. 

Simply put, these are four critical features that Google should have had in the product from day one:

1. The ability to open and close threads with a carrot (carrots are those little arrows you see in the screen shot).
2. The ability to open and close comment threads with a carrot.
3. Comment update notification on collapsed threads.
4. Browser based notification of Google+ updates.
