Update – looks like this is no longer working. As an alternative, I would suggest using this: Google Calendar in Your Sidebar (iPhone Version)
I love my Google Calendar, but loading up the official web site each time I want to check it out is sometimes a burden.
Since I use it much more as a to-do list rather than actually setting up events and times I needed a quicker way to access. So I thought, why not figure out a way to open it in the sidebar in Firefox?
Here are the steps to get it done:
- Create a new bookmark (right-click and select “Bookmark this link…”) for this address or drag it to your bookmarks toolbar:
Mini Google Calendar
- Right-click on that bookmark and select “Properties”.
- Check the box that says, “Load this bookmark in sidebar” and you are good to go! I promise you this is a tip that is easy enough for anybody to use and setup.
Now you can access your Google Calendar and upcoming events on your agenda without pulling up a new web page.
