I have been meaning to write this post for a while now. I have found a few new
favourite extensions for Firefox. Mainly they help me make the most of the space on my screen.
Here’s what my screen looks like right now:
- Download Statusbar cures one slight annoyance with Firefox. Instead of opening the Download Manager whenever I save something from the web, the Download Statusbar will appear at the bottom of the screen. Kind-of the same thinking as with the neat Find bar that Firefox has. You can make it hide automatically when you’ve opened your downloaded files too.
- Hide Caption Titlebar Plus lets you get rid of the titlebar at the top of the window. As you might have guessed. This gives you more space for web pages. Works really well with the next extension.
- Tabs On Top puts Firefox’s tabs at the top of the window. Used together with
Hide Caption Titlebar Plus above, this makes them easier to target with the mouse.
- Link Target Display is another great extensions which indirectly increases the space left over for web pages. With this extension, you can hide the status bar, and still get to see the URLs that links point to.
Hope you find these useful!
