The Ultimate Bookmarks Toolbar Replacement Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Samfind is the bookmarks toolbar Firefox should have had from day one.

The author, Marco, has provided a ton of predefined links and content across a variety of categories to help you find--and search!--news, shopping, weather, social media, and many other sites. However, the real power in Samfind is not in the pre-installed information, but in the customization potential.

With the check of a single box Samfind can incorporate and replace the Firefox Bookmarks Toolbar--and do so with numerous enhancements. Bookmarks may be displayed as icons alone or with text, even on the Mac where Firefox doesn't offer favicons on the Bookmarks Toolbar.

Moreover, Samfind's groups create an extensible location for many, many more bookmarks than will fit horizontally at one time. Groups of task-specific bookmarks and bookmarklets can be displayed, then instantly replaced by another set. In my installation of Samfind, for instance, I've created sets to hold bookmarks and bookmarklets to help me view and manage my 10+ websites and blogs; my clients' websites and blogs; my various social networking services, and; my accounts on services like Google Analytics, BuySellAds.com, Feedburner, and over a dozen others. I have far too many links to display at one time on a single toolbar--particularly when I switch to a smaller-screened laptop--so the ability to organize them into one-click-access sets--to share the same space with dozens of buttons and links--is a massive boon to my productivity.

In all sincerity, all you have to do is install Samfind and spend 10 or 15 minutes playing around with it. After that, you'll never use Firefox's Bookmarks Toolbar again.
