Editors' Review


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.

"The new version is awesome."

January 22, 2010  |  By bobbyphoenix

 |  Version: Quero Toolbar


Now open source. Keep checking the official website for updates. Now can be used for just the ad blocking. Has a great phishing tool.


Doesn't block 100% of adds like Adblock plus for FF, but I would say about 99.2% of them. Best tool/add-on I have found.


I always liked IE, but the ads just killed me. This is by far the best tool out there for IE. Has many other features that can add to an overall better IE experience.

"needs adblock ONLY option -- no toolbar desired"

July 04, 2009  |  By adssuckband

 |  Version: Quero Toolbar


* appears to be free
* works in IE8
* blocks ads in IE8
* does not require dot NET -- unlike adblock IE


* not clear WHY/HOW it is free
* developer agenda not clear


I would rate it higher if it had an adblock only install for IE8. I am not a fan of toolbars. I don't like search hijacking.
