Toolbar lacks business sense

Don't expect to find lots of business info with this free toolbar.

Besides a really bad name and a few home-based business links, Multiplestreamsofprofit_toolbar.exe doesn't offer users anything that stands out from the thousands of other toolbars out there.

Multiplestreamsofprofit_toolbar.exe offers all the basics: pop-up blocker, e-mail notification, weather forecast, and the ability to customize the interface by adding and removing buttons for your favorite applications and gadgets. We will say that the radio played without a glitch, and we were able to add our own stations to an already long list of stations, but a functioning radio isn't enough to make this toolbar stand out. The one differentiating feature on this toolbar is the drop-down menu of links to various home-based business sites, but we have to admit, a few of them seemed more like gimmicky, product-push sites rather than genuine business resources. The RSS feed comes loaded with hundreds of feeds, but quantity is no substitute for quality, and again that seems to be lacking here.

If you're looking for a toolbar that offers sage business advice, this is certainly not the toolbar for you, and the basic features it offers probably won't interest nonbusiness users, either.
