    So, another Internet Explorer add-on toolbar...but wait! Quero Toolbar is different: It's actually worth using. For starters, it's not like those spyware "toolbars" that continue to plague unprotected PCs and careless users. Quero Toolbar is actually designed to block pop-ups, flash animations, and other ad-related annoyances that can spoil your browsing. It also integrates a search-as-you-type function, easily selectable search engines and international profiles, a highlighter, easy zoom and resize, security options, and much more.

    Quero Toolbar installs seamlessly with all versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 and above. The Quero button on the navigation toolbar opens the menu, which gives you access to all of Quero's primary functions as well as its Options, which are considerable for a free toolbar. The Options dialog has tabs for Settings, Search Profiles, Ad Blocker, Security, Appearance, and Advanced. You can configure Quero to warn you about suspicious characters, something your mother would probably approve of, even if it's things like nonstandard ASCII characters and missing glyphs and not the wrong sort of friends. The Ad Blocker lets you choose just what kind of ads to block; for instance, you can allow flash animations and banner ads but block DVI and IFRAME ads and ad scripts from Web sites like Google. You disable the Ad Blocker for allowed sites, too.

    Quero Toolbar is easy to use, but it gives you a lot of choices, and it's small and out of the way when you don't want it. And, best of all, it's free.

      "One of the few toolbars that actually doesn't suck."

      June 07, 2011   |   By Atomic1fire

      Version: Quero Toolbar 6.0

      Pros

      Increased control over IE9's navigation,
      Adblock, and you can also get a seperate optional TPL file for complete adblock in IE9, which is how I first learned of quero, and snazzy theming options that while not complete, supplement a few tastes.

      Cons

      I have some feature requests, but there are not too many cons about this, it's a toolbar that actually serves a purpose, not just a search engine advertisement because it sports a wide number of search engines.

      Summary

      The abillity to add extra buttons, like weather, simular to bing toolbar would be nice, but it's already a deal breaker if you are looking for a addon that gives you more control over IE9, and gives you an adblocker/flash blocker this might be the toolbar for you.

      "Excellent IE toolbar with IE9 64 bit support"

      April 20, 2011   |   By iwillneverstop

      Version: Quero Toolbar 6.0

      Pros

      - Working with latest IE, Windows 7 (come to the author web site for more download options)
      - Ad blocker
      - Navigation bar replacement
      ... and many other cool features

      Cons

      None, up to now, I can't find one.

      Summary

      The best toolbar for IE I've ever known. With many cool features such as Ads Blocker (better than Ads Block Plus on Firefox) , Navigation bar replacement (looks like Google Chrome), Highlight search terms, Customize toolbar appearance (plus Aero Theme), ..., Quero Toolbar makes me happier with my IE9 64bit. Give it a try and spend sometime playing with its option, some IE tips and installation instructions, you will never be sorry.
