Instant Google Shortcuts with GButts

Do you use a lot of Google services?  The Firefox add-on, GButts, will help you get quick and easy access to any Google service you want, next to your address bar or anywhere else you might need it.

Here are all the Google services you can quickly show or hide via the extension.

Add a Google Service Button, Anywhere!

You can customize how much space you want to save with the options across the bottom (by making the menu a toolbar or a drop down menu).  You also have the option of a horizontal or vertical menu.  You can then right-click on your toolbar, go to “Customize” and then drag and drop the GButts Toolbar you created on to your toolbar layout – anywhere you might need it.

If you are a heavy Google user – the GButts add-on should be right up your alley.

Mini Map for the Firefox Sidebar

A Mini Map in Your Sidebar!Who doesn’t want to have a map in their Firefox sidebar?

Ok, sure maybe I had never thought about doing that either, but for the mobile person I could see where this might be handy. While checking up on the latest CyberNet News I found this neat extension – Mini Map Sidebar.

Here is a little more about the extension from the developers.

This extension comes with two mapping components, the main and most powerful one being a minimap sidebar. In this sidebar you can drag and drop addresses or locations you find on web pages and they will be automatically located, and added to your saved address list. The sidebar is launched from the toolbar icon (customize toolbar and drag in), a statusbar icon and the view sidebar menu.

It is a map, it lives in the sidebar… what else is there to say?

Quick and Easy Maps

Are you in a hurry to find a map? The Map+ extension for Firefox should help you find where you want to go. You can view a map of a selected address in Firefox without changing windows or tabs using the right click command. The maps are generated in an iframe window using the Yahoo API. Aspects of the map display are customizable, including the window location, height, and width.
