Tiny Menu for Firefox

tiny-menu.pngDo you think your menu bar takes up too much of your browsing room in Firefox? Over the years, not a lot of changes have happened to the menu bar that your find on top of most applications. Your File, Edit, View choices always seem to stay the same. What if we could shrink Firefox’s menu bar down to one drop down menu? That would save some space, right?

After you install, right click on any toolbar and choose customize. Drag all items in the navigation toolbar (back/forward, address bar, etc) up into the menu bar. Right click on a toolbar again, and un-select the (now empty) navigation bar. Tada, tiny!

LiveClick

Live bookmarks are great. They make RSS feeds just a little easier for folks that might not have a feed reader of choice. There are a few things lacking from the experience though. Thankfully though there is now a Firefox extension that fills in the holes when it comes to live bookmarks and how they work.

Is Firefox 2.0 a Google Mole?

Right off the bat, I think this is a little silly and playing a little too much chicken little. In Firefox 2, Google’s new “safe browsing” features seem to have more than a few folks ticked off. Why? It is because Google will control the list of Web sites that may be “miscreants”. So we want fixes to the problem, but we don’t want one person to be solving the problem? This is like calling a plumber to fix a leak and telling him to bring three or four buddies to make sure he did his job right.
