Chrome & Firefox App for Google+ Main Icon Clickable

I got tired of always trying to click on the Google+ icon to go to the home page instead of the small little home icon. For some reason I mentally just click on a sites main icon/title to go back to the websites home page. Sense I also do this mentally on Google plus it started to bug me after a while so I decided to change that.

Here is a little script that I wrote to add a link to the Google+ icon on their page.

// ==UserScript==

// @name Google+ link
// @namespace http://localtechrepair.blogspot.com
// @description Changes the Google+ icon to be a link to home
// @include https://plus.google.com/*
// ==/UserScript==
var newHTML='<a href="http://plus.google.com/"><img id="gbqld" class="gbqldr" src="//ssl.gstatic.com/s2/oz/images/google-logo-plus-0fbe8f0119f4a902429a5991af5db563.png" alt="Google Products"></a>';
document.getElementById('gbqlw').innerHTML = newHTML;

The script is easy as that.

Install Here for Google Chrome

Install Here for Firefox

I hope that this is useful for you guys.
