Buttonizer Gives You Cleaner and Neater Viewing Area by Turning a Toolbar Into a Button (Firefox)

Many who alternate between using Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox know that the latter always comes with many toolbars. Unfortunately, as more toolbars and extensions are used, Firefox can become cluttered, so your viewing area for webpages become less and less in time.

A Firefox extension called Buttonizer solves this problem.

If you use small screen PC, you can get more space in your browser with Buttonizer without having to hide the toolbars from view and without sacrificing the viewing area. This Firefox add-on converts a complete tool bar into a simple button on the address bar.

How it works?

All you need to do is download and install Buttonizer from the Mozilla add-on site (link). Once installed, you will need to restart Firefox. After this, you will see Buttonizer as a button on the right side of your Address bar. All you need to do is to right-click on it and then select which toolbars can be converted to a button.

Once a toolbar is selected, it becomes hidden. When you mouse over the Buttonizer, you can access the hidden toolbar again.

However, you can only set one toolbar at a time to a button. When you right click the Buttonizer button and select another toolbar as a button, the previous toolbar will revert to normal. The advantage of this app is that you no longer need to click so many buttons just to retrieve a hidden toolbar on the browser. The app works sort of like a button shortcut.

According to its developer, Byungwook Kang from South Korea, Buttonizer works great if you are using a small screen such as from a laptop or netbook. The next step for Kang and Buttonizer is adding multiple button support.
