Twitter from the Location Bar in Firefox

Tweeting from the Address Bar TwitterBar, which funny enough isn’t some geeky place to buy alcoholic beverages, is a simple Firefox add-on I know a lot of you who use Twitter will enjoy.  What does it do?  It turns your location bar in Firefox into a Twitter client.

The way it works is a small Twitter icon sits to the right of your location (or address) bar; clicking on it will post your tweet, and you can hover your mouse over it to see how many characters you have left.

Its short, simple and reeking of awesomeness.
