With all the toolbar extensions out there, a run-of-the-mill entry that performs well but lacks that something special will fail to impress. Such is the case with BTech Browser Toolbar.
All the standard components are there--pop-up blocker, e-mail notification, weather display--and all worked as expected. The publisher does offer a few gadgets to add to the toolbar, and we were able to add and remove them without any problems. Oddly enough, the few links that are offered take you directly to various Saline County, Arkansas, government offices (Health Department, County Clerk). There's also a link to a local radio station, but we couldn't get it to play.
BTech Browser Toolbar can be customized, but that's nothing new in the wide world of toolbar extensions. If you're a resident of Saline County, Arkansas, then you'll appreciate the few extra links this toolbar offers; otherwise, there's nothing here that makes this toolbar worth downloading.
