Make your Firefox address bar better

The best thing of Google Chrome is its address bar that has both the classic address bar role and the search bar role.

Firefox To have the same behavior on Firefox you have to remove the search bar. After that you can type your searches in the address bar. Unfortunately the default behavior is to show the useless “I’m feeling lucky” Google response, to get a full response you have to do the following steps:

  • type about:config on the address bar and tell Firefox that you aren’t going to make a mess.
  • search for the keyword.URL entry. Once you found replace the default string with this one http://www.google.com/search?btnG=Google+Search&q=



I'm using the same trick, anyway I've lost the wonderful suggestions that Firefox shows up when you type into the search bar. :(

Also Internet Explorer 8 has the same functionality as Chrome. ;)
