Make your Web travels more productive with Google Toolbar. In a nutshell, placing a Google search box directly into your browser makes it easier to find what you want because you can access Google features from any Web page. The toolbar offers a highly effective pop-up blocker, a nifty News button, a simple forms filler that automatically fills out Web forms with information stored locally, a translation utility, maps, and more customization options. You also can automatically create a Weblog (blog) post pointing to the Web page you're visiting. Of course, the BlogThis! feature only works if you have an account on Google-owned Blogger.com.

Note that using advanced features such as PageRank automatically sends the URLs of the site you are viewing back to Google's servers. The PageRank feature is optional, and you can enable or disable it at any time through the toolbar's Options button. But if you are concerned about privacy, Google gives you the option of downloading a version that does not report back. Anyone who regularly uses the Google search engine likely will find this toolbar an essential pickup.

"Pop-up alert"

August 23, 2011  |  By stephen

 |  Version: Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer 7.1.1920.1238

Pros

software works OK

Cons

Pop-up locking your computer and forcing you to accept them tracking your intern travel.

Summary

Google used their software to send me a pop-up to give them permission to track my intern travel and locked my computer until I allowed them to do it. I uninstalled Google and will find someone else to use.

"It was good while it lasted."

July 03, 2011  |  By Seagle88

 |  Version: Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer 7.1.1920.1238

Pros

I have always like using Google Toolbar.

Cons

Now suddenly it refuses to give images. Loads one page and the rest is blank. Could not figure out why or how to change this problem. And where is the help?????? Little to no help with problems. And it updated with out asking if I wanted to.

Summary

Web searching was great with Google. None of the others compares. Don't know what to do now.

"google updated the tool bar and removed most buttons"

June 01, 2011  |  By richardao

 |  Version: Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer 7.1.1920.1238

Pros

spell checked, auto fill,

Cons

I removed the Google updated toolbar. Changes: Google desides
when and which buttons to replace. The update did not ask if it was OK to install...the updated version to me is useless and just takes up space....now it is gone for good.

Summary

Google's Toolbar was great until they decided four buttons was the max, the other buttons went into a dropdown menu, plus two of the four buttons on the toolbar change.
