About this Collection
Get the best balance of Chrome's UI and FX's extensions. XUL styles, Firefox tweaks, and userscripts are also important, so I'll be releasing screenshots and details later.
26 Add-ons in this Collection
Switch tabs by scrolling with the mouse wheel in the tab bar.
Collector's Note Add the scroll-wheel tab switching functionality that all other major browsers either get for free from the OS widget toolkit or re-implement without the need for extensions. Best used with http://userstyles.org/styles/36095 and, on Windows, a titlebar-hiding extension.
View and manage downloads from a tidy statusbar - without the download window getting in the way of your web browsing.

Collector's Note This is what the Chrome download shelf is a bad rip-off of. I suggest setting "Automatically clear these file types: * after 5 seconds"
Add a compact menu button to the navigation toolbar, and hide the menu bar.
Collector's Note Chrome-like "all in one toolbar button" menubar replacement... though I'm really looking forward to Firefox 4 polishing it up a bit.
Automatically upload .torrent files to your favorite BitTorrent client's Web Interface. Works with Azureus and uTorrent.
Collector's Note The closest thing I could find to "Deluge in Chrome". Not as nice as having toolbar button drop-down in which I can manipulate my torrent settings, but does the job acceptably well.
Hides and shows the bookmarks toolbar.
Collector's Note Not quite as good as Chrome's "only show bookmarks toolbar in the New Tab Page" functionality, but close. I recommend turning off "Show settings in a popup menu" and "Enable hotkey", setting "Hide bookmarks toolbar" for both startup and new window, and adding the toolbar button next to the Home button. Especially useful if you keep bookmarklets and infrequently-used toolbar buttons in your bookmarks toolbar.
Unique "speed dial" add-on for Firefox that gives you a fast way to to open your favorite sites using keyboard shortcuts. Ctrl + Space invokes the 'Launcher' then a single letter key press opens a specific site. E.g: open Facebook by Ctrl + Space, F
Collector's Note A quick launcher somewhat reminiscent of Quicksilver, Launchy, GNOME Do, and KLauncher which can also double as a more useful alternative to Chrome's New Tab Page. I use its "One entry, multiple pages" support to launch my e-mail, feed reader, and any non-feed sites I have to check daily with "Ctrl-Space d". I'm also exploring its utility as an alternative method of triggering bookmarklets.
Create Prism applications directly from Firefox
Collector's Note Firefox's answer of Chrome's "Create Application Shortcuts..."
Inspect the current element with the DOM Inspector.
Collector's Note Replicates Chrome's "Inspect Element" context menu entry.
Change your bookmark icons! Right-click a bookmark, and select "Properties", then "Browse" for a new image or paste in a URL.
Collector's Note A must-have tool for anyone who has at least one bookmarklet.
This extension will enable you to organize your status bar icons. You can now rearrange or remove any item (icon or text) in the Firefox status bar. If your status bar is full and cluttered like mine was, give this a try.
Collector's Note The tool for reordering and hiding statusbar icons that should really be part of Firefox itself.
Press enter in the AwesomeBar to select the first result (without pressing down)
Collector's Note Another tweak to bring the AwesomeBar a little closer to the portions of the Omnibar's behaviour I consider relevant. For cases where you need a reliable shorthand or you want to leverage existing muscle memory, Firefox's built-in bookmark keywords system does perfectly and I've seen quite a few Chrome users asking for something similar. NOTE: Seems to be broken with 3.6.8. I'll keep it on this list just in case it gets fixed.
