This solution is fairly widely known, if you do a Google search for it many sites will come up. If you’ve ever used Google’s fairly new browser, Chrome, you will have probably noticed that the tab bar, unlike most browsers, is in the top menu bar, the bar with the three buttons to minimize, restore or close the current window. I would have to say that particular feature is definitely one of the best features of Chrome, besides saving a lot of space, it looks a lot cleaner too. Now how do you do this? There are two ways you can do this, the first is to download an addon called Chromifox, which gives Firefox the look and feel of Google Chrome, or you can download Chrome Package, which I think is the better of the two. Here’s why. Chromnifox, while it does give you the look and feel of Chrome, if only moves the tab bar to the top, above everything else, so you don’t gain any space at all. Chrome Package on the other hand, take the tab bar and melds it with the menu bar, so that you do gain extra space. And besides, Chrome Package looks better. Now if you want to download and use Chrome Package you will have to get an account at the download site, because Chrome package is an excremental, or beta, addon. To do that all you need to do is click the Register link on the right side of the screen, then fill out the form fields. Once that’s done you should be able to log into your account, and download Chrome Package. Because Chrome Package is an excremental addon, it comes with all of the same risks of downloading any beta program, so be careful. I for one have never had any problems with any beta addons from Mozilla, so I wouldn’t worry about it if I were you.
