Chrome-like UI for Firefox

The suggestions in the article are great for making Firefox run faster, but I think Chrome's UI is greatly superior.

I usually use Chrome, but when I do use Firefox, I run these extensions:

- Chromifox Companion
- Chromin Frame
- Hide Menubar
- Pimpoflage
- Speed Dial

This makes Firefox look and act very much like Chrome.

This screenshot is Firefox, not Chrome!
