I got very accustomed to the way Firefox and Google Toolbar worked, and now I'd liked to do something similar with Chrome.

Every extension I add that I want to see the icon for, makes my address bar shorter and shorter.

Is there a way to put these all onto a second row, allowing the address bar to stretch across as normal.

The end result would look something like the Google Toolbar and Firefox address bar look together.

Chrome 5 has a grab-handle on the address bar, so you can adjust the width allocated to the extension icons and force them into a drop-down menu (indicated by a >> symbol).

But no such thing exists on Chrome 4 as far as I know, but you could try the Chromy extension

Ironically, I cannot see a Chrome extension which helps you tidy up the address bar and remove the clutter from all those other extensions.

Thanks, Chromy will work for now as far as hiding the "button" extension icons! Leaves more room for address bar and status/notification icons. – Brett Allen Feb 19 '10 at 16:02
