THIS EXTENSION IS NOT MAINTAINED ANYMORE. PLEASE USE THE GOOGLE CHROME VERSION: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/shortcuts-for-google/baohinapilmkigilbbbcccncoljkdpnd
Display all Google services as buttons or as a space-saving dropdown menu next to your address bar or anywhere you like it. Reach services like Gmail, Google reader, Google maps, Google calendar, and many more in a single click from your browser.
By adjusting the settings you decide which services should be available for you as buttons.
Left click on a button opens the service in the current tab, MIDDLE CLICK opens a new tab. Left click + Ctrl + Alt opens the service in a sidebar (nice for Google Contacts).
You can also change the main appearance from a toolbar with all buttons you've selected to a single space-saving dropdown menu.
If you don't see any buttons:
Add the buttons on menu, view, toolbars, customize! Or install version >1.7.2 which adds Google Shortcuts automatically.
