Editors' reviewAlthough we appreciate its free status, this run-of-the-mill toolbar doesn't stand out from the crowd with any special capabilities. The Free Toolbar sits unobtrusively in your browser window, blending seamlessly into the overall mix. This program lets you comb the Web via eight search engines, including MSN and Google. You'll also find a dictionary, a thesaurus, and a very bare-bones utility for erasing your Web-surfing history. The app's built-in pop-up blocker was certainly not invincible, stopping some basic pop-up ads but allowing other to squeak through. The Free Toolbar also won't work with Netscape, Mozilla, or any browser except Internet Explorer. But since it is totally free and doesn't take up much room on your system, we think that certain users might get some benefit from this toolbar.
Eliminate annoying pop-up ads. The Free Popup Blocker is now included with The Free Toolbar. Our integration with Internet Explorer blocks pop-ups before they appear. Search with The Free Toolbar from any site. Get results from dictionary, thesaurus, stock quotes, and popular search engines. The eight engines include Overture and FindWhat, the engines that feed Yahoo and MSN. You're not locked into any engine. The program remembers your preferred engine. No spyware. No adware. The Free Toolbar--we don't track your movements, we don't serve you ads, and we don't even ask for your e-mail address.
