Want to tweak on your tabs? No I am not talking about doing anything filthy with your browser, I just want to share with you a great guide I found on and out getting the most out of customizing your tabs inside of Firefox 2.
I am not going to lie to you, I like this extension just because of its name. GButts adds the functionality of having your Google services on the same toolbar section as your home, bookmarks, forward and refresh buttons are. All you need to remember to do is drag and drop them onto your toolbars. If you find yourself using Google’s services a lot, then this extension is right for you.
I couldn’t tell you the number of times I find something cool Online. I am always finding cool things, and I probably forget where half of them were five minutes after finding them. Clipmarks is a nice tool to keep my cool things in order.
I noticed a post over at Download Squad about a new Firefox add-on that allows you to use uTorrent inside of Firefox.
The uTorrent WebUI can be used to access uTorrent from an external computer. This also opens the possibility to handle your torrents from your browser window. We’ve discovered a Firefox extension that makes using the WebUI a lot easier.
There might be a few steps involved in the process, but the final result is pretty sweet!
The Mozilla Labs Blog has a nice in-depth look at the world of coloring your tabs. Yeah, something that sounds about as interesting as watching your laundry get hot in your dryer is actually interesting.
Today we are featuring a Firefox extension that Justin Dolske just whipped up called Chromatabs. It colorizes each browser tab to provide a strong visual indication of which site is loaded.
Hey, Mozilla Labs guys and gals, give me more of this type of content. Nice all around.
Now I have been using just favicons on my bookmark toolbar for a while now. To face the facts, it does make my browsing a little faster and a little less cluttered. What if you could do the same thing with your tabs though? The FaviconizeTab extension takes away the text on your tabs and replaces it with just the favicon from the Website in question.
Now my only question would be, what do you do when you visit a lot of Web sites that are the same? What do you do when you visit Web sites that have no favicon? This is a neat idea, but for long term use – it might need some tweaking.
You have to face the facts, some toolbars out there just do not play nice with other toolbars. Do I really need a whole row of my browser wasted, when I only use about half of a toolbar’s features? The DragNDrop Toolbars extension lets you reclaim some browsing space by making the browsing elements a little easier to manage.

The Google PageRank extension for Firefox has been updated to support Firefox 2! I am not sure why, but this is my favorite of all the Google PageRank extensions there are out there. It is in no way officially related to Google. It was just written by some guy to solve a very simple problem. If you don’t like all the crap that the Google Toolbar includes, you might check this out.
Flickr is a great resource for photography fans and regular folks alike Online. If you find yourself search for photos there though, and get a little lost or even confused – it is understandable. I feel your pain, and that is the reason I went out and found the Flickr Sidebar.
