Quick Tip: Show PageRank in Firefox while Google Toolbar is Hidden

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:

I moved mine up out of the way, but still easily visible.

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

    Great tip. thx!

    I hadn’t realised you could do this and you can literally drop it anywhere even into a.n.other toolbar you have installed. I dropped the PageRank button in to the Web Developer Toolbar as there is plenty of space and it placed it roughly where it is in IE.

    Thanks again!
