It worked on my computer with FireFox, though I think it just updated so maybe it depends on version?

Dear Google+, I do love your formatting, integration and ease of circles over the similar FB services. However, what I'm really looking for is a third party app that let's me post to g+, li, fb, etc from one place!

Just a matter of time if Google+ gains early critical mass. I use LinkedIn quite a bit and Facebook hardly at all, mainly because i use social media for professional purposes only. Google+ seems to hit a sweetspot.
