We should eventually have a customizable toolbar system similar to that of 
other browsers.

We can expose all (or at least many) Chrome commands to show up in the 
palette of choices, and allow addon developers to add their own too.

This will cover the "I want a button on the toolbar for <random feature X>" 
requests we're getting

llow making Ctrl-F menu (search in the page) always visible would be great too, like 
explaned in issue <a href="">

Looks like a duplicate of Issue 22099

They are closely related, but this Issue also seemed to propose a customization 
palette, with some common action buttons included out of the box.  (Perhaps a bug 
title change is in order.)  I was hoping for an implementation that'd let me finally 
add a Stop button on the left, which Issue 22099 still doesn't enable.

I've submitted Issue 24498, since (as simon observed) Browser Actions render this
issue's title obsolete.  Also, since Browser Action implementation details are still
in flux, I thought I'd strike while the iron is hot.

Area-UI-Features label replaces Area-BrowserUI label

I would really like something like this.  I would at least like some way to add
bookmarked pages into a toolbar for easy access.  This missing ability is the only
reason I don't use chrome (Unfortunately because firefox crashing 5 times a day)

I don't quite understand what you mean, you can show/hide the bookmarks bar either with an option in the wrench menu, Ctrl+B or Ctrl+Shift+B, do you mean something different? I don't like the idea of adding an extra tool-bar to chrome, I believe one of the main ideas of chrome is to have as much vertical real estate as possible.

I think BrowserActions suitably take care of this.
