Searchbar Autosizer 188.8.131.52-signed No Restart
by Kevin Cox
Autosizes the searchbar as you type, cleans the query or reverts to your default search engine after submitting. Supports almost all themes and various search bar related extensions. Useful for saving space on a small screen.
About this Add-on
We are also actively testing new versions, if you would like to get involved visit https://github.com/kevincox/autosizer/wiki/Get-Involved for information.
The main idea of Autosizer is to keep the interface minimal, which is especially useful if you're on a notebook with a small display. If you're not using the searchbar the URL bar can be maximized while still being able to read a reasonable long query when searching. The search query can be removed and the search engine be reset right after submitting in order to save your screen estate.
You can choose between different modes how Autosizer should size the searchbar; all can easily be customized via the integrated Assistant:
- Size incrementally, to each letter
- Enlarge Searchbar on first strike
- Keep the same width all the time
Other features include:
- A setup assistant so that you can get it to behave just like you want.
- Shrink to button when empty.
- Fully localized. (If your language translation is not complete see https://github.com/kevincox/autosizer/wiki/Get-Involved)
Please do not submit bugs in the reviews it is really hard to respond as I only get one comment and are not notified of your edits. It is much easier to manage in our bug tracker at https://bugs.launchpad.net/autosizer. Thank you in advance for making my life easier.
