Lighter Mozilla Firefox

Light Mozilla Firefox 3.6, like Chromium
To make the UI of Firefox lighter similar to the Chromiums one, you can accomplish that by installing some add-ons. These are the add-ons that I have:

  • compact menu 2 - to transform the menu into a drop-menu button.
  • in about:config:
    browser.allTabs.previews = true
    to make the top-right corner arrow display a thumbnail list of tabs
  • optionally uncheck the status bar from the view menu, e.g:
    View --> Status Bar.
    To see the links, it's good to install the add-on Fission, enable all or any checkboxes.
    It would be advisable to remove the search bar at the right corner, and use the Awesome bar, e.g:
    ?myQuery to search something.
  • install the add-on xclean - adds a little icon to remove the selected text, useful if one needs two stuff to copy, one with the mouse, and other with the normal clipboard, so the selection wont replace the content

And that will be all, to ensure speed, install any adblocking add-ons, speed optimizers, etc.
