One of the reasons why I prefer to work with Firefox and not Google Chrome as my main browser is that I can modify Firefox's interface in a way that I can't in Chrome. You can't add a status bar to Chrome for instance no matter how hard you try to do so and moving icons between toolbars is also not possible in Google's browser as there is only one (unless you'd count the bookmarks bar).
There is also no menu bar in Chrome and even though recent versions of Firefox are not showing it by default, it is still accessible with a tap on the Alt key on the keyboard.
To access settings in Chrome I either have to click through the one-button menu or enter a local page in the address bar if available and known to me. To manage extensions for instance, I have to click on the settings button and then Tools > Extensions or enter chrome://extensions/ right in the browser's address bar.
Mega Button improves the accessibility of several local Chrome pages and features by making them available via a single button on the address bar. A click on the button opens a small toolbar right beneath it that looks like this:
The toolbar provides you with one-click access to the following pages and features of the browser:
Here is a short video that demonstrates the extensions' functionality.
Mega Button improves the accessibility of Chrome's internal pages and while that is great, it is definitely not the fastest option that you have. You can for instance display the bookmarks bar and add the internal pages you work with regularly to it or install an extension that adds a link to an internal page directly to the browser's toolbar.
If you do not want to use the bookmarks bar and use multiple of these internal Chrome pages regularly, you may want to take the extension for a test drive as it can be quite useful to you then.
