Ok, how many of you out there have a folder with Google bookmarks in them?

Yeah, I do too.

The GUtil Firefox extension is plain and simple. The extension is installed in two places: one location is a button off to the left of the address bar and the other location is a pulldown menu item called GUtil! Each option provides you with a list of all Google services, which makes things easier to locate instead of bookmarks. If you look at the add-on options, you'll notice that you can turn off the menu or show it. My preference is to turn it off since I have enough on the pulldown menus.

My Google bookmarks folder has been removed and replaced with the GUtil button.

I imagine that every new Google service that appears will be added to the list and the extension will be updated automatically (Hence, the extension update. Ahem!) :-)

If this makes my life easier with cataloging all of the Google services in one central location instead of me constantly looking for every Google site and URL and then moving each bookmark to their Google folder and then...ahhh...nevermind,. Anyways, it really helps.

Anything to make a Firefoxer's life easier. ;-)
