Combine Web browsing with finding shopping deals and collecting coupons for bargains. This toolbar brings it all together.

The AAfter Toolbar installs quickly and easily. Its not the best design we've seen for a toolbar, and it takes up more viewing real estate than seems necessary, but its not as cluttered with buttons as many other toolbars. We like that it doesn't try to be all things to all surfers. Instead, it focuses on its search engine and shopping deals.

The toolbar performed well in all our tests, quickly returning search results and responding quickly when we clicked any of its buttons. In our tests, it performed better with Firefox than with Internet Explorer. With IE, it occasionally would lock up during searches, and we'd have to shut down the browser before relaunching it. We didn't encounter these problems in Firefox. Categories of shopping found in the toolbars Fresh Coupons button included shoes, wine, costumes, gardening, travel, and more.

If all you want is a search feature, you should stick to Google, Yahoo, or whatever you may already use. But if you're a dedicated online shopper, you'll want to try out the AAfter toolbar. This add-on and its home page offer coupons and shopping deals that include cash rebates for purchases. Power shoppers will like these features and the toolbars buttons that provide updated coupons and rebate deals. If you're finding your usual online shopping haunts a little stale, test drive the AAfter Toolbar for a change of pace.
