Editors' Review

Add an AltaVista search toolbar to your Internet Explorer browser, but while this program adds quick links it gives users no new functionality. AltaVista Toolbar is a single search box and a few pre-configured buttons. The toolbar does bring many useful functions to the forefront of your browser, including page translation, site search, and various information lookups. All the toolbar functions default to searches on AltaVista or its parent company, Yahoo. For example, enter Largo, FL, and click Zip Code and the toolbar opens the AltaVista search box with the entry "largo, fl zip code." You could do that yourself by opening the AltaVista homepage, but the toolbar does save a few keystrokes. The toolbar does add a pop-up blocker, which is useful for those still using older versions of IE. You won't do any harm by adding this toolbar to IE, but AltaVista's search and lookup capabilities are not up to those of other search sites. All levels of user will find this toolbar easy to install, but more advanced users will probably look for a search toolbar with better results.
