Editors' Review

The Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer does more than give IE a shot of nitro. With a set of features both useful and self-promoting, Google Toolbar 5 beta feels like it adds four cylinders to IE's engine, turning it into a powerhouse of personalized functionality for both IE 7 users and those who are stuck on IE 6.

There's the dedicated Google search window, the highly effective pop-up blocker, the form autofiller, the translation utility, the spell checker, and the map tool that automatically links addresses in Web pages to maps. Then there's the full integration with the Google suite: Google Earth, Google News, Froogle, Google Maps, Blogger, and others. Every single one of the integrated tools, including the toolbar itself, is fully customizable.

Note that using advanced features such as PageRank automatically sends the URL of the site you're viewing back to Google's servers. This can be enabled or disabled during installation or at any time by clicking the toolbar's Options button. Unfortunately, there's no way to remove the search bar, which wasn't featured in IE 6 but comes standard in IE 7. Still, by permanently setting the two search bars to different engines, you can at least avoid a waste of space.

You can even use the Google Toolbar without a Google account. But considering all that comes with it, why would you?
