Editors' Review

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.

"Everything you could ever need/want"

January 28, 2006  |  By Stinger15

 |  Version: Google Toolbar (Windows 2000/XP) 3.0.124.6

Pros

This is definitely everything that you could have ever need. Not as much as what you would want as there's always things that you could want in a toolbar.

Google Toolbar as many options to turn on and off different buttons and search items. Very useful especially if you don't feel like typing in google.com!

Cons

Nothing at all.

"Best search engine, not best toolbar"

January 26, 2006  |  By Andrew932

 |  Version: Google Toolbar (Windows 2000/XP) 3.0.124.6

Pros

Blocks pop-ups (few years ago, free ones were hard to come by!)

Google search

Other nifty little features

Cons

Unlike the Yahoo toolbar, doesn't have Spyware scanner

Nothing new

Be good if it had an IE virus protector and/or Anti-spyware

The features are a bit old and uninspiring

"Best toolbar you can get for Internet Explorer"

January 21, 2006  |  By CableguyTK

 |  Version: Google Toolbar (Windows 2000/XP) 3.0.124.6

Pros

It searches google.com.

Comes with an automatic form filler.

Comes with the ability to highlight search terms on active page.

Includes search history.

Cons

Popup blocker was revolutionary before Internet Explorer hit it current post-SP2 state, at which point a popup blocker was built into the program. By default, after install the Google popup blocker is turned on by default. Having both on doesnt work too well. I think it might be a good idea to remove this feature somewhere down the line.

Google Rank isn't very good. Some sites should be given higher ratings in my opinion.

"Google power saves IE once again!"

January 06, 2006  |  By Jyakotu

 |  Version: Google Toolbar (Windows 2000/XP) 3.0.124.6

Pros

Google is slowly taking over the internet. The toolbar they came out with is great! It blocks a lot of pop ups and has a search engine built into it.

Cons

There could be more features, but that's just a minor feature.
