This simple toolbar lets you search several popular search engines from one location, but those wishing to add extra search engines to this freeware are out of luck.
There's not a whole heck of a lot to Nutshell Toolbar's interface. A search field takes up most of the toolbar, and a Go button lets you choose from five search engines: Google, Amazon, Dictionary.com, IMDB.com, and Daypop. The toolbar saves you the time and trouble of having to retype a word each time you perform a search. Once we typed a word into the toolbar, a simple click of the mouse pulled up the word under each search engine. We would like to have seen a customization feature that would allow the user to add search engines of their choice.
If you're a frequent visitor to the search engines provided with Nutshell Toolbar, then this toolbar will save you some time. Otherwise, this toolbar's limited offerings won't appeal to you.
From Andre Torrez:
The Nutshell Toolbar is a Windows Internet Explorer (5.5 and above) toolbar that makes it easier to access the search engines of Google, Amazon, Dictionary.com, the Internet Movie Database, and Daypop. Instead of having to navigate to the site and type your query into its search engine, you can do it quickly from any IE browser.
