What's the best extension to make firefox' home page look like chrome's? I'm specifically interested in the shortcuts for the most visited websites.

"The Speed Dial extension lets you add thumbnails for whichever shortcuts you want (I don't think Chrome can do this), but it won't arrange them by usage count.

New Tab King will list the most-recently used sites, closed tabs, and suggested sites; but it doesn't show thumbnails for the pages.

The closest thing to Chrome's layout is Jump Start"

"While not quite the same, I use Taboo to provide thumbnailed shortcuts, and have this Taboo page set as my homepage. The key difference is that you decide on the Taboo links - it doesn't calculate the most popular links, so it's similar in UI if not quite the same in practice.

Personally, I prefer this to Chrome because the links are fixed - I find it slightly annoying in Chrome knowing that a given link will be on the front page, but not quite sure what position it is in.

YMMV."
