Strips off most of Google Voice, resizes the window, and restyles the styles to produce a small google voice page,
optimized for uses such as an OS X menu bar application (via Fluid).

See the screenshots.

Basically, you end up with two buttons at the top, Call and SMS. Which call up the autocompleting call/sms balloon from the webpage.

I recommend Matthew Rex's excellent icon. http://www.matthewrex.com/2009/07/13/icon-googl...

Fluid Users:
I recommend installing a Browsa drawer plugin, making "https://www.google.com/voice/m/contacts" your homepage. Then you get a restyled contacts list in a sidebar...

Everyone Else:
this should still work fine in other browsers. Might work well in the firefox sidebar.
