AwesomeBar Awesome Feature #832
A friend of mine mentioned how awesome the new Firefox 3 beta is last night while we were playing a little Halo. “I know,” I told him, maybe a little cockily.
Undeterred, he plowed on, “the best new feature is, you know how you can collapse the toolbar and location bar on the Mac? With that little capsule button in the corner?”
“Yeeaah,” I offered, eager to hear where this was going, figuring he was going to say something like, you know it makes the browser area bigger, right?
“Well, now when you’ve got it collapsed, you can hit Cmd-L and a little Location Bar drops down.”
I let this sink in for a minute, realizing I was in uncharted territory.
“You mean I can hit Cmd-L and a Location Bar appears out of nowhere?” I asked incredulously.
“Yeah! It totally saves all kinds of space on my MacBook!”.
“O.M.G.” I think I said.
So, yeah, that little useless capsule button? Not so useless anymore. And having the full awesome power of the AwesomeBar available on Cmd-L in a collapsed toolbar? I can’t even tell you how cool that is.
