We all like using the find bar in Firefox right? It makes it simple to find a string of text or maybe even just a word on a Web site. It is clean and simple. I love how it just comes up at the bottom of the screen when I need it as well. Is there a way to make the find bar experience any better? Findbar Basics tries to do just that.

The Findbar Basics extension does a few things. Some of these include: a status bar button that opens the find toolbar; a clear button inside the find toolbar for clearing all text from the input box, an optional toolbar button that opens the Find Toolbar, Ctrl-F toggle to switch the Find Toolbar on and off.

There is something to be said about the ease of use of the find bar. Since it was moved down to the bottom of the screen, it has become one of my favorite Firefox features. Any windows that pop up at me make me angry. Why pop up a box in front of the text I am trying to search through?

Many other programs could learn from Firefox in that department.

This extension is compatible with Firefox versions 1.0 through 1.6. Download it today and find what it is you are really looking for.
