Browse Your Favorite Site with Keyboard Shortcut Using SiteLauncher Firefox Add-On

Fire-fox has lots of add-ons available and many are under development. Firebug is one of my favorite add-on along with few others. Today i found another one called SiteLauncher. SiteLauncher is an add-on for Firefox that gives you a super-quick way to to open your favorite websites using only your keyboard. One special hotkey brings up the 'Launcher', followed by a unique key to launch a site.


SiteLauncher is especially useful as a super-fast method for opening websites you use often throughout the day, for example, many people would probably want to add Google, Gmail, Facebook, and Twitter, to SiteLauncher - what sites to include is entirely up to you.

Default hotkey is Ctrl+Space (or Ctrl+Alt for Mac users)


  • Because each site key is displayed in the Launcher, you don't have to memorize a bunch of key combinations to have shortcuts to loads of sites, only one hotkey.
  • Default hotkey is customizable, in case you need it for something else.
  • Add as many sites to SiteLauncher as you want.
  • Just about any character key can be associated with a site, you're not limited to just a-z, 0-9.
  • Highly customizable appearance - change colors, text size, spacing, column size, etc
  • Optional visual effects - transparency, rounded corners, and gradients
  • You can have your site shortcuts automatically arranged or manually arranged in the order you want them to appear inside the Launcher
  • Set Launcher to open sites in current or new tab
  • Optionally, set Launcher to appear on startup instead of your homepage

Install it.
