Google+: Enlarge Photos With a Simple Mouse Over in Chrome

Large Google+ profile pictures and shared photos are displayed as small thumbnails. Sure you can just click on them to get a larger view. But wouldn’t it be nice to just mouse over them for a larger view? Here’s how.

First install the +Photo Zoom extension for Chrome.

After it’s installed, go to Google+ and mouse over any thumbnail in your Google+ Stream to enlarge it.

    It’s already available for chrome (and has been for some time)under the hoverzoom (version3.4) extension. I use that all the time.
