IGoogle Sidebar is a Firefox extension to view your Google Personalized Home page modules in the sidebar with an optimized layout.

This extension was inspired by a tip posted by Erica Joy on her blog.

Erica suggests to create a bookmark to your Google Personalized Home page and to open it in the sidebar using a built-in feature of Firefox.

This trick works great - or at least it did worked great until either Google changed the code of the page or the new Firefox changed the actual layout, making it unusable (squeezed 3 times horizontaly).

This extension aims at reproducing the feature initially described in the trick, with additional features.

Here are some key features of "IGoogle Sidebar":
Un-squeezed modules
Optimized layout: removed header, search box and footer; removed margins

Future versions may include more features like the ability to collapse modules.

Bug reports and feature requests can be posted on the extension's home page.

Firefox 1.5 - 1.5.0.* ALL

What's New in This Release:
This release adds a new feature to quickly hide the sidebar without closing it, to avoid reloading (available as a toolbar button, popup menu item, or by double-clicking on the splitter).
It updates compatibility for Firefox 2.
