Messy status bars make for bad browsing. Ok, maybe that is not true. They do make for a temperamental and somewhat anal Firefox guru though. Mike wants to know if there is a better way to organize the status bar in Firefox.
For some reason I don’t like to have a lot on my taskbar. I think it would be really neat if someone would develop a Firefox plugin to read data from the mlb gameday servers and popup a summary window similar to what the Cingular minuteminder plugin does. The ideal plugin would effectively minimize the gameday window into a summary bar similar to the minuteminder and foxytunes plugins, and it would open the gameday window in a popup on mouseover just like minuteminder.
I don’t think there are any extensions out there smart enough to know, “Ok it is Friday, time to show this extension” but I do have one for you that will help you organize your status bar woes. Check out the rightfully named Organize Status Bar extension.
It should help you at least gain some control over your messy status bar in your favorite browser.
