Firefox Sidebar and Google IG

After reading Erica Baker’s Blog, she posted an article called Firefox Sidebar + Google IG = Useful on any platform. Basically this allows for you to have the functionality of Google Desktop on any OS.

The following requires a little knowledge about manipulating Google IG
1) Using Firefox, browse to http://www.google.com/ig (may work in other sites, but this works the best)
2) Line up all your Gadgets on the left, putting the ones you’ll use most at the top.
3) Once you’ve got everything arranged, bookmark that page and give it the name Google IG.
4) Open Bookmarks in the toolbar and select Manage Bookmarks.
5) Highlight the Google IG bookmark and click on the Properties button.
6) In the Properties dialog check the box next to “Load this bookmark in the sidebar” then click OK.
7) Double click the Google IG bookmark and it should load in the sidebar.
