If the main reason you install the Google Toolbar is for the PageRank, now you can easily display the PageRank of any site with a tiny extension for Firefox instead of the full Google Toolbar.

This extension has become one of the first extensions I install on a new config. Check out the minimal goodness:

    I know this extension but it’s not as accurate as GG Toolbar. It gives often different results.

    But you can install the GG Toolbar, detach the page rank and put it in your menu bar, then hide the GG Toolbar.

    PR will still be there, minimized ;-)

    I actually wrote an article about using the Google version in minimized mode… it’s in the related how-tos section.

    I haven’t found any cases where this extension doesn’t show the accurate pagerank, though. I ran the two in tandem for a while just to make sure.
