I prefer the built-in search box to the full Google Toolbar, but I miss having the PageRank easily visible when I’m browsing around without the Google Toolbar enabled. Sure, you can have it installed and hidden, but then you have to reload the page for the pagerank to show up after you unhide the toolbar.

I’m going to assume if you’ve read this far that you also have the Google Toolbar for Firefox installed.

To use this extremely quick tip, just right-click anywhere on the toolbars, choose Customize, and then drag the PageRank button somewhere else:

Only three clicks required for this Quick Tip. Not too bad.
