…The Firefox sidebar is now useful?

Google SidebarHere’s an interesting idea: As more and more websites become iPhone compatible, the ability to load a site in Firefox’s sidebar becomes more and more useful.

With this simple trick, you can pull contact info from Facebook, or see what the latest Digg story is, all without even leaving the page you’re on.

Here’s how:

  1. Bookmark your favorite URL
  2. After you have saved the bookmark, Go to the Bookmarks Menu and right-click your newly created bookmark. Choose the Properties option.
  3. Check the box that says ‘Load this bookmark in the sidebar’.
  4. The next time you open that bookmark, it will popup in the sidebar!

Easy, right?

Now go load some sidebar pages!
