Google Plus Comment Filter


Plus Comment Filter

One of the things I dislike about the G+ streams is the way comments are handled. For most people it's OK, but for folks like +Robert Scoble and +Jesse Stay who have tons of followers, they're comments come in fast and furious making it tough to even scroll past their posts to see what's below.

I'm used to having things my way, so I wrote a Kynetx app that hides the comments. In their place it puts a link with the number of recent comments. Clicking on the link shows the comments. The link is a toggle, so clicking again does what you'd expect and hides the comments.

This makes it easy to scroll down, find the posts I'm interested in, and--if it seems interesting--look at the comments.

This is a Kynetx App, so it works inside the Kynetx Browser (KBX) extension. If you already have KBX, getting the +Comment app is easy. If you don't the KBX will be installed as part of the app installation (then you can check out the other cool Kynetx apps too). Because it runs inside KBX, the app will work on Firefox (even 5), Safari, and Chrome. If you really want it for IE, let me know and I'll generate one.

Try it out and let me know what you think.
