Link Toolbar for Firefox

In: Mozilla

6 Mar 2004

I can’t believe I missed this Link Toolbar extension all this time. It adds a small site navigation widget in your statusbar that allows you to make use of any <link>s that a webpage may have. Opera has it, so does Mozilla. But this extension probably places it in the best and most logical section of the browser screen – in the statusbar. It doesn’t reduce your viewport like the one for Opera does (it appears as a toolbar). I’ve been wanting something like this ever since I used it on Mozilla.

Here’s a screenshot:

And another with the More widget in action, displaying the alternate RSS format for a website:

This is such an essential plugin for me these days that I tend to install it even before things like mousegestures and tab extensions. I can’t stand not having access to that “other versions” menu.

The number of extensions I install with every FireFox upgrade makes me think they should be ‘packaged’ somehow – perhaps having checkboxes on the installation sites to ‘build and deploy’ the applications you want.

Just like you, I use the link toolbar/link it combo, as well as:

  • Adblock
  • TBE
  • All in one Gestures
  • Cute Menus
  • Grippies
  • EditCSS
  • Web Developer
  • Web Panel Enhancer
  • IE View
  • Bookmark Links Checker
  • Compact Menu
