Are you already touching the Google+ limit of 5000 people in your circles? Do you want to do some clean up and get rid of all the inactive people? Uncircle+ is a Google Chrome extension for you.

Uncircle+ lets you uncircle people (i.e. remove) inactive people from your Google+ circle with ease. So, if you want to add new people to your circles, you can add them without reaching the 5000 limit.

Do note that the “Inactive people” here referred by the author of the extension, are those people in your circles who have not shared any posts (original, reshare, private or public posts) with you. So, if that person is having at least one post, he is active. Thus, after doing the housekeeping with this extension, if you want to further cleanup “dormant” accounts, you have to do so manually. We are referring “dormant” here are those people who have not shared any post for a long time after they signed up.

The survival of the Angry Birds is at stake. Dish out revenge on the green pigs who stole the Birds’ eggs. Use the unique destructive powers of the Angry Birds to lay waste to the pigs’ fortified castles.

Chrome Angry Birds: All levels unlocked!

Thanks to Wesbos who found this hack that will give you access to all Angry Bird levels, even the special Chrome levels!

Chrome Angry Birds: Special Chrome levels unlocked!

To get access to all levels in Chrome Angry Birds, just copy and paste the following line into your browser’s address bar.

javascript: var i = 0; while (i<=69) { localStorage.setItem('level_star_'+i,'3'); i++; } window.location.reload();

Note: You have to do the copy-paste job in the tab in which you have opened the game.

If you want to set all levels back to locked (virtually resetting Angry Birds), simply copy and paste this into your address bar:

javascript: var i = 1; while (i<=69) { localStorage.setItem('level_star_'+i,'-1'); i++; } window.location.reload();

Wesbos has also explained in his post, how and why this hack works.

In the talk Rovio did at Google IO, they mentioned they were using HTML5′s LocalStorage. If you open up Web Inspector in chrome, you’ll see they are keeping track of your score and stars with localstorage. Lucky for us, that means we can use setItem() set all 70 levels to 3 and get access to them all.
