Trick Out Your Firefox with some Chrome Sweetness


While Google Chrome is a pretty sweet browser and it’s speed is hard to beat, Firefox still feels like home and has a lot more blogger friendly tools either built in or available as add-ons. So, for now I’ll be sticking with Firefox as my primary browser and occasionally toying with Chrome.

Fortunately the new Google Toolbar (BETA) for Firefox adds at least one nice tool from Chrome. The most visited thumbnail grid when opening up a new tab.

If that’s not enough Chrome-like sweetness for you, you can head over and check out one of the Firefox Chrome themes to Google it up a bit more.

  1. I’m also trying to figure out how to set the most visited tab as your homepage in Firefox so that is what your browser opens to, which is a very nice option in Chrome.

  2. I've been using the extension Fast Dial for a while. It does a similar thing, and with it you can set it to be your homepage (I am not familiar with the Google Toolbar extension):https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefox/addon/5721You can set your homepage to ” chrome://fastdial/content/fastdial.html “. I believe the extension also includes a GUI interface to do this.But, the Google Toolbar places sites there based on statistics, while Fast Dial is more of a manual bookmarks-displayer.
