Google+ tip for the day - make it look like Facebook!
You may or may not want to do this depending on whether you like the 1984 MAC look of Google+ or not.
Go to http://userstyles.org/styles/50051/google-facebook and follow the link for installing Stylish which they have for most web browsers. I've installed it in both Firefox and Chrome.
Once Stylish is installed in your web browser refresh the page and you'll see a link to install the Facebook style. Click that and browse Google+ again.
