Even though the plus.google.com service is not yet publicly available and some people feel like the guy above, it does not stop developers from jumping into the Google+ boat early.
One of such people has already created a Google Chrome extension (Facebook Friend Exporter), which will export your Facebook contact data to Google Contacts or CSV.
What should be noted is this: according to the developer, as of the 5th of July, Facebook is working hard to prevent you from exporting your friends data and has already removed their emails from your profile.
However, the guy behind Facebook Friend Exporter is already working on a new version that is set to use the different approach to bypass Facebook trickery.

Recently, Google has announced a couple of interesting new features for its search engine designed to enrich the overall experience.
The first one is called “Search by Image” which allows Google Chrome and Firefox (extension is required) users to search by using an image.
All you have to do is drag and drop the picture into the search box and that’s it, Google will figure out the rest (including location) and display somewhat relevant search results.
According to Opera, Google Instant, a search enhancement in the Google search engine that offers faster searches, smarter predictions, and instant results, now works in Opera as well. No tricks such as masking are required to make it work as was previously the case.
To test it, simply go to Google and begin searching. Opera asks any users who were masking as Firefox to remove the masking so as to attain as much feedback as possible on this new implementation.
According to acceleration company Strangeloop, utilizing Google Chrome reduces webpage download times by 10% to 20% if the sites use Google’s fast Web protocol.
Support for Google’s SPDY has been added to Strangeloop’s Site Optimizer appliances as well as its Web acceleration service, making download times even faster than they are with Site Optimizer alone. – Strangeloop President Joshua Bixby.
The upcoming Mac OS X release from Apple is set to have a browser only mode, similar to one found in Chrome OS.
According to MacRumors, Lion lock screen includes an option to “Restart to Safari”, which basically just boots an operating system with the web browser only.
Furthermore, thanks to the new auto save feature, users can continue where they left after OS is switched back to the default mode.
Mac OS X Lion is set for July release and should be available in the Mac App Store for $29.99.
