Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Honestly, I as a bit overwhelmed by the size of this toolbar, however, after actually checking out, I love it. I didn't realize just how much I used 95% of the tools on the toolbar. For instance, my husband is a regional truck driver, so he's always asking me to pull out the Rand McNally Road Atlas for truckers, which I swear is all of 15lbs. With Samfind I can get just click on the map icon. Also, of course, I'm on facebook, twitter, etc. so, now I just click the appropriate icon on the toolbar and there I go..no more typing in the urls. I use google & yahoo search, wikipedia, shopping, banking, read blogs, email and watch videos...to think of it SamFind must have telepathy because my whole day is mapped out in this huge, but compact toolbar. I just know this Firefox Add-on will shave 3 hours off my day...literally. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would. This is the perfect tool for busy internet users with more than 10 bookmarked pages. No more typing urls or searching for bookmarks!!!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.3).
Samfind Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Quick download. Like the fact the categories are well thought out and the toolbar doesnt change the basic Mozilla set-up.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.3).
This is really cool! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
It is really customizable, and easy to use. Perfect add on for those that enjoy making Firefox their own!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.3).

This pertains to version 2. If you don't find that version on Firefox, you can download it from http://bit.ly/version2. This is a dandy replacement for your Firefox bookmarks toolbar, although conceivably you could use both. It's remarkably configurable, so it should meet the needs of almost anyone. Compared to the Firefox product it has some serious advantages. For one thing, you can fit more bookmarks into it. This is because while you can include folders in both, samfind has an icon for each of its folders (which it calls "topics") -- so you can save space by omitting the text. samfind has a huge number of available topics and bookmarks, so you can use it right out the box without having to use other software to scrounge up icons. You can also create your own topics and your own bookmarks. You can choose to display the topics or the bookmarks. You can hide everything until you're ready for it, or you can display samfind on the same row as your (shortened) location bar, thus releasing that space for websites you're viewing. Many other useful options.
I'm also greatly impressed by the availability of technical support, which in my experience has been lightning-fast and thorough, to a degree not found even with paid software.
WOW Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Wow. This is like every great website combined into 1 website/toolbar. And it's so customizable! I love it!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.3).
Excellent Improvement with v2 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Samfind has always been a very slick toolbar, and I recommend the current version, however, v2 is especially nice. One of the things that I've always liked about the toolbar is that it can reside in the same row as the URL bar and can be opened and collapsed simply by clicking on the icon. This is very handy is your don't want a toolbar that takes up real estate at the top of your browser, and you don't lose anything because it's very easy to get to. The auto-hide is also nicely done.
The ability to customize the toolbar is also remarkable. They've incorporated virtually everything as an option. I haven't been able to find anything that's been left out, and I've been using this add-on for several months.
The current version is recommended and v2 (which was just released) is highly recommended.
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is an extremely well done addon that should really be on everyone's browser. V 2.0 makes set up and bookmark toolbar management a breeze. Add sites by simple drag & drop complete with favicons, and you can add a ton of links with the category setup option. Once this tool is added, productivity immediately increases because it is so easy to jump to where you need to be. I have five blogs I read every morning, and samfind makes it a snap to open all of them into different tabs with one click. Definitely a "must have".This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.3).
Top notch Add-On Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The Samfind toolbar is what I would call a 'Needed' Add-On. Everyone should give this a try. It aggregates darn near every social and search site you can imagine. Again, give it a try. I think most everybody will find good uses for it.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.3).
Positive Improvements Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I really enjoy the improvements that have occured with Samfind. The new use of the Socialize Tab, which allows you to choose from many different services (facebook, twitter, digg, etc) allows me to pick exactly what I want to see on my toolbar. I also like the new look to the topics&Websites Tab. I am always a sucker for people who give me the choice to search from more than once different search topic. Somedays I like google, others I like ask, etc.The only real negative thing i have to say for it, is that after you find so many things that you would like to see on your toolbar, there are times when it can be VERY crowded. This caused me to want to start reducing my options which then made me make other changes, and before I knew it, I got rid of over half of the things I wanted.Overall, this is a great bookmark bar that I am really looking forward to seeing how much more improvements can be made in the future.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.3).
2.0 beta is AMAZING Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I am using Samfind 2.0 beta. The interface is slick and intuitive.
There is a sidebar available as well, which is great for getting access to all of your tabs.
In the customization window you can drag your websites to different topics.
The RSS feed shows up in my sidebar and looks great.
I had the normal version of samfind for awhile and found that it is the most used toolbar in Firefox. I love that I can open websites in a new tab.
Very highly recommended.
awesomebar integration,keyword support,add to search bar and finally make this default! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
this add-on is should be made default with awesomebar integration and keyword support. that would really rock!! whats missing is a better "add to samfind search" context menu when i right click on a searchbar in a webpage. it will make it a lot easier. add to search bar has done it, i know you can do it too. and finally, a little polishing,a vista-like toolbar would be nice.. well that's all thanks for this dynamic toolbar =]This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2).
Right-Click on SearchBar
Thanks for your feedback. In our new version 2.0 you will find right-click capability to add the search engine to any website that needs a custom search engine. It makes it much easier to get a search engine for a website. Great idea! Thanks!
Private beta 2.0 Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Right click options off good customization. Would like to add Firefox Custom buttons and drag and drop web sites to the toolbar. Sam is working on it.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2).

Fantastic add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I love this add-on! It's soooo nice to have toolbar buttons to the websites I visit frequently, rather than typing in the URL or navigating through all my bookmarks to find them. It's much better than Yahoo! Toolbar, which only lets you add a couple custom buttons with Firefox. Thanks for providing the great browser add-on that I've been searching for!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2).

Tabs Highlighted please Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I think this is a great tool. The only thing is I find it a bit hard to tell which tab I am on. Just wondering if the page I was working on could be bolder or brighter or highlighted in some way so as to see which tab to close when I want to. Rather than clicking thru or closing off the wrong one. Maybe it is there and i am just not seeing it?
It's take a small space and perform many tasks Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It's take a small space and perform many tasks. It's very great tool.
Before Samfind Bookmarks Bar I had 4 add-on's and many bookmarks for my shourcuts, but now very little space and only one addon. It has lots of customization options; auto-hide, placement (below webpage, in NavBar with show/hide button)), u can use topics or websites with icon&text or with only icon or with only text, u can add seperators, u can integrate with bookmarks toolbar..... ohh as I said lots of customization options.
It allows instant access to the bookmark sites and I think with the updates u can find another services.
This add-on's now in my favorite add-on's list.
I hope my review is helpful and I think u should try Samfind Bookmarks Bar.
Another "Must Have" Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is truly one of the most useful add-ons I've found. The bookmarks I use most often are always right there, and it is extremely easy to customize, so you can control the look and feel to your liking. It's so intuitive, it makes me wonder why it hasn't been done before. I've always had too many bookmarks to use a toolbar for even just the sites I visit most often, so I've gotten used to wading through cascading menus. But with samfind I can have a ton of bookmarks, organized to my liking, all in one toolbar. Amazing. This a whole new concept in organizing your bookmarks. I'd like to see this included as part of Firefox. It would be one more of the many things that makes Firefox unique.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2).
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.
