Transform Firefox browser into Google chrome using addons

By Sidharth | Google

If you are a fan of Mozilla firefox but also love the Interface of Google chrome web browser then here are some of the addons and tricks which I think will help in transforming your Mozilla browser to match and give a feel of chrome. You can also make use Google chrome addons and bookmarklets to enhance the Chrome browsing experience.

Chromifox addon – Firefox Chrome theme

Chromifox is a simple addon which will change your Mozilla firefox default theme into Google chrome styled theme including the tab bar and all the navigation buttons.The theme matches Chrome with a bright and soft blue refreshing color,chromifox addon is compatible with Firefox 3 on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X

Recently closed tabs addon


Google chrome shows the recently closed tabs whereas there is no option option to see those closed tabs in firefox.One thing you can do in firefox is go to the history and undo the closed tabs or use this “Undo closed tabs addon” which when installed will show you a button with the recently closed tabs history list.It will show recently 10 closed tabs,clicking on them will direct you to that webpage.

Download Notification addon on Status bar

Another firefox-chrome difference is the download status.When you download a file in firefox browser a window pops out when showing the download status (time remaining,size of file) whereas in Google chrome the download status is seen in the status bar.

Downloading Statusbar Firefox addon will bring the Chrome status bar download feature in your Firefox browser.

Auto dial homepage addon

Whenever a new window or tab is opened in Chrome browser,you can see a list of websites which you visit frequently.Here is a firefox addon called as “Auto dial” which will showcase frequently visited pages easily accessible when you open a new tab.You can also alter the links to be shown (ha! this feature is not  available in chrome too 😉 )

Alternately you can try downloading speed dial extension which works like opera speed dial showing thumbnails of websites.
