article imageGoogle +1 button Chrome extension released

Now you can +1 any sort of content you come across that you'd like to recommend, with a single click of mouse, on Google's Chrome browser.
The +1 Button extension was made available on Tuesday, and has had 14,536 downloads at the time of writing this story. The plugin has got an average rating of 4.52 on Chrome Web Store by the users.
As Google has explained in the description of the extension, when you "+1" a page, you're basically telling Google that you like it. +1'ing a page publicly will add that page to the list of webpages you +1'ed in the +1 tab of your Google Profile. If you still want to know more, you might wanna take some more time and read this as well.
But again, there is no reason to be paranoid about your privacy when it comes to Google +1's. Google knows how important every single user of theirs is. All in all, it is a decent little plugin that will help your friends discover which sites and pages you like. When a friend (who is logged in) of yours looks up a keyword term on Google and Google sees that you've +1'ed a page that's related to that keyword, those result(s) will be given a higher priority in Search Engine Rankings, and your friends might actually thank you for helping them find good stuff on web!
So, why was extension plugin a necessity? The answer is in the tagline of the extension . It allows you to "+1 a web page, anywhere you go on the web". Earlier, if you wanted to +1 a page, you had to look for a +1 button on the page itself that you can click, and what if the webmaster hadn't added a +1 button? Well, then you wouldn't be able to, unless you +1'ed it in organic search listings in Google. That's the main importance of this extension. You don't have to rely on websites having these buttons anymore. You can do it for any page and from anywhere you go on the Web.
If you're a Chrome user, download the extension from here. It's only available for Chrome as of right now. We don't know for sure whether similar plugins will be released for other browsers (like Firefox, IE and Safari, etc.). Only time will tell.
