InstantFox is a new and rather cool free Firefox addon which adds super powers to your browser address box. Once installed it delivers a bunch of very useful shortcuts for search as well as giving instant access to apps like calculator etc. There’s nothing here you can’t do with other addons and/or with a bit of manual configuration, but it’s still very cool.

The only slight glitch I suffered was the fact that it pushes some of my nav bar icons out of sight when installed, but I’m assuming this is a teething bug, and should be fixed sooner rather than later. In any event it’s the kind of addon that you should definitely keep an eye on, because it’s super useful.

 Our vision is, that you use your addressbar as a smart commandline for almost everything. HowTo: simply put: » g searchword « into your addressbar to search with Google.
