As we all know, the Google Chrome is famous for its minimalist approach to laying out the interface. There is no menubar and statusbar and the tabs are located out of the window rather than inside the window. One of the important component that it has successfully discarded is the search bar. Instead, there is this omnibar that acts as both an search bar and URL address bar. Now, if you love this minimalist concept of combining the search bar and address bar into one and want to implement it in Firefox, here are two extensions that can easily do the job. Omnibar extension.
Has been around for quite some time (since Google Chrome was first released). What it does is to hide away the default search bar and integrate the feature into the address bar. After installing the extension, you will find that your search bar is gone and your address bar is now extened all the way to the end. There is a new icon at the end of the address bar. Clicking on the icon will display your list of search engines where you can choose which one to search. Before: After: Select search engines In the Settings page, there are options for you to choose if you want it to show suggestions (based on your search terms) and how many suggestions for it to show. One interesting option is that you can choose the mode to display the suggestions.
You can either get it to show rich mode, slim mode or rich & slim mode. Here’s the differences between the various mode: Rich mode: Slim mode: Rich and slim mode: You can further customize if you want the search engine name or icon to display in the address bar. Foobar extension (not to be confused with the Foobar2000 media player) is an experimental addon (at this point of writing) similar to Omnibar in many aspects. It also combines your search bar into the address bar and displays an icon at the end for you to select the search engines. The differentiation between a search terms and an URL has been pretty accurate.
