This is the wiki of TGS where you'll find information about the extension. Feel free to navigate by using the right sidebar. Most of the pages here were initially derived from the website of AiOS.

What is TGS?

The Good 'ol Sidebar (TGS) is a sidebar control add-on for the Pale Moon web browser, inspired by Opera's. Click on the left edge of your browser window to open the sidebar and get easy access to all your panels. It lets you quickly switch between sidebar panels, view dialog windows such as downloads, add-ons, and more in the sidebar, or view websites in the sidebar. It includes a slide-out button and a toolbar, all of which can be extensively customized.

  • You can set the orientation to left or right, set the minimum, default and maximum width and the behavior on browser startup.
  • The Good 'ol Sidebar provides enhancements for many built-in features, which are related to the sidebar.
  • The options dialog gives you the ability to configure many features, behaviors and the appearance of The Good 'ol Sidebar.
  • Enjoy a clear browser window, more toolbar space and much more...

This extension is a fork of the discontinued All-in-One Sidebar, an extension for the Mozilla Firefox browser.

Some notes about the point of this extension

What it is and what it should remain

The intention of TGS is to improve and enhance the sidebar handling and the related built-in features of Pale Moon itself. Nothing more, nothing less.

What it is not and what it should not become

TGS is not an extension for a lot of new sidebar panels like tab lists, notes, RSS reader, instant messenger, social bookmark services, browsing sessions and so on. But if you need help/tutorial on making sidebar panels, a page about that will be in this wiki if time permits.

Where to download?

The Good 'ol Sidebar is available for download at the releases page of this repository or at the Pale Moon Add-ons site. Downloading from APO is preferred because it provides updates via the Add-ons Manager.
