"Very customizable, RSS cool, Yahoo and Google Search"

November 23, 2005  |  By itelllc

 |  Version: Crawler Toolbar 4.1

Pros

I found the webmail interface particularly nice, the customizable buttons a good feature, and the RSS feeds probably best in toolbar department. I don't pick this up as spyware using Adaware and AVG, which is all I use. Google's toolbar is more invasive in the privacy department.

Cons

If all the add-ons are active, I think it can be a memory hog for my circa 2002 computer.

March 12, 2006  |  By bengreenslade

 |  Version: Crawler Toolbar 4.1

Pros

excellent pop-up killer. Killed every single 1 that i did a test on and only allowed ones i wanted.

free skins. made my ie look cool with a new skin.

Cons

might make you browser slow if you do not have much memory.

You might be at risk of spyware if you download the add-ons such as free games.

"Think this is spyware or a bad toolbar? You deserved to be banned from earth!"

February 10, 2006  |  By CableguyTK

 |  Version: Crawler Toolbar 4.1

Pros

If you even begin to think that this is SPYWARE to a BAD toolbar then you are a dope and deserved to be banned from the planet earth.

This is neither spyware or a BAD toolbar. In fact, I would go so far to say its the best toolbar available for Internet Explorer. This is coming from a guy who has been using Google Toolbar for more than 6 years.

It comes with every feature standard with toolbars: popup blocker, formfill, highlight search terms, search bar with ability to search MSN/Google/Google Images/Yahoo/Jeeves/Dictionary/Encyclopedia/and some other nice ones, and search history.

It comes with features you find in only specific toolbars: traffic rank from Crawler (Alexa toolbar), e-mail link (Google), and some others I'm sure you find in other toolbars.

Then there are some awesome things you won't find anywhere else: a mail checker with alert window (which blew me away, it is just that good), weather (which also blew me away since the weather program it installs is so SLEEK), plugins, RSS, DOWNLOAD MANAGER ("***?!" factor)

...I mean seriously, you can't expect to find all of this stuff in one toolbar...well until now.

And the customization...my god. The options are so easy to navigate and use, easier than Google Toolbar's. There are skins, plugins...so much stuff that lets you make the toolbar your own.

I just can't believe people would be so dumb to not even try this product, not even give it a shot.

And my god, I was so amazed to see an AUTOMATIC UPDATER! It even checks for updates. Not even google toolbar does that. It automatically updates everything from plugins to the toolbar files themselves.

Cons

There are cons with every program...so this is not unexpected.

I had some issues getting the traffic rank plugin to show up. But after doing an update and restarting the computer it showed up fine.

The traffic rank uses Crawler's own rank as opposed to more accurate one like Alexa or Netcraft. The traffic ratings from these sites are based off the anonymous data that USERS OF THE TOOLBAR send back; so the more users of the toolbar the better data. So its just an indication that there aren't many people using Crawler toolbar, which is a a shame.

You probably won't like the fact that on install it will automatically set all your IE default pages to Crawler pages. Its not terrible since all the sites are 100% safe, but for those people who like having Google set to their default search pages and stuff, this may be an issue...but its nothing that hard to change anyway.

.

.

.

.

If you are actually so nieve to think that Crawler is Spyware related, fine, you don't deserve to use their high quality software, which includes their high quality screen savers and their top notch antispyware programs.

But if you are the adventurous software junkie like I am, I implore you to try this software, you may actually like it and make you change your default toolbar....hell, I did.

And no, I have no affiliation with Crawler whatsoever. I'm just a software junkie who is willing to try stuff, unlike some people around here.

By the way, everything webgrrrl says should be taken with a grain of salt. She has neither read the product descriptions of Crawler software (which say there are no spyware or popups or adware or such) or tried the software. She just likes to spam the fact that Crawler once was a spyware related company, but this is about 5 year old news that is now obsolete since they have cleaned up their act.

"The most fun I've had with my computer in a long time."

February 08, 2006  |  By PigeonCat

 |  Version: Crawler Toolbar 4.1

Pros

Crawler remembers your favourite skins, games and cursors; and there's lots to choose from! Clean toolbar. Best of all, no spyware or anything else you don't want.

Cons

I've tried twice, but cannot turn on the mp3 player/radio feature. I've downloaded it, twice, but still can't get it on my toolbar - and this is the one feature I really want! :(

"Cool utility!"

January 24, 2006  |  By kathan12

Pros

I love the RSS reader (I usualy dont think of reading online news, but when I see it running over IE toolbar can't but click it). weather plugin, e-mail notification function and 3D eath ssaver are very cool too...

I don't understand why someone sais it is spyware or something - have been using it already about 2 months and didn't find any "suspicious" bahaviour... no outcoming info.

Cons

don't have any cons - I would uninstall it in this case...

"More features than you can see at the first sight"

December 06, 2005  |  By John_Peters

 |  Version: Crawler Toolbar 4.1

Pros

I checked the Crawler Toolbar settings and discovered that I can install even more features than they offer at the first moment. There is also:

* Email Plugin

* Screensaver

* Fun Ball

* RSS Reader

* Spyware Terminator

* Weather

* Web Security Guard.

You can install it all in the "Plugin Management" tab.

And I really love those browser skins, they rock!!!

Try it out, if you do not like it, you can always uninstall it, right? ;-)
