Today, the folks at Orkut released an extension of their own for the Google Chrome browser. The extension provides a fast and easy way to access different features of the service and stay updated about the activities of your friends on the social network.
After you install the extension, a small icon will appear on the toolbar, which when clicked, will provide various options to choose from. For one, there’s a Share this pageoption, which will let you post the current page you are on to your Orkut profile.
You can search and open profiles of your contacts, check updates to your account and get alerted of the scraps you’ve received.
As a matter of fact, the extension supports notifications that will alert you of new pictures, status messages, videos and scraps from your friends as well as application updates.
