Excellent!!! - Superior to Hide GUI Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is an excellent addon for those who appreciate browsing real estate but find full screen mode to be to much. The addon allows hiding selected toolbars with a shortcut key. The toolbars to be toggled are selected by the user. Unlike the "Hide GUI bars" extension, Minimode allows hiding toolbars added by other extensions.
(1) Option to change keyboard shortcut
(2) Option to open the location bar with shortcut (ctrl+L) instead of opening the dialog box as it currently does. The dialog box recognizes keywords for searches but not tab opening settings (it will always open in current tab)
(3) Option to show hidden toolbars on mouseover (like a customizable full screen mode.) FF's full screem mode automatically show/hides all toolbars including the tabbar (which I always want visible) and it also over lays the FF window over the Windows' Taskbar (which I also want accessible always). This is why I came to like Minimode so much.
Bjørn: Thanks for Minimode. It is a great addon. It really enhances my browsing experience. I wonder why it is still experimental?
PS: Could someone post a script to toggle Minimode using Firegestures . This will rock!
