Editors' Review

+

This Internet Explorer browser add-on includes a number of tools, foremost of which is a dandy Web radio player that works just fine. Along with the Internet radio player--which includes a long list of preinstalled stations dedicated to a variety of music genres--Web-Radio Toolbar includes a search engine; an e-mail notifier you can configure for Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, and POP3 accounts; a pop-up blocker that allows you to clear your browser cache, history, and cookies; and a weather alert feature.

This toolbar and its plethora of features performed reliably in all our tests. We were able to play stations with no connection difficulties, and we only found one unavailable station from those on the predefined list. The toolbar includes a connection to the Web-Radio Web site, which allows you to submit other stations as candidates to be added to the predefined list. This download will suit any IE user who wants to tune in to music or news while working, but those who prefer other browsers will have to look elsewhere.

This toolbar was deleted on a boot time spyware scan the following day. I trust my security software. I have been with them for a long time.

Web-Radio Toolbar, your out a here! I can't afford to have spyware on my machine.

"Looks like spyware to me!"

June 27, 2007  |  By keithrwarner

 |  Version: Web-Radio Toolbar 4.5.140

Pros

Like the radio, but...

Cons

...why does everything I type in the Location bar or Google toolbar end up in it's search box?

...what is a browser toolbar doing in My Computer, My Documents etc?

I think I'll steer clear of this puppy, thank you!

"Outstanding!"

April 21, 2007  |  By radio55

 |  Version: Web-Radio Toolbar 4.5.140

Pros

No warnings by my security software, great popup blocker, email notifier for hotmail, gmail, yahoo and POP, temp.,free and easy to use. This toolbar also comes with a free email account. I created a download.com account with it and am happy to post my first review. I was leary at first but this has turned out to be more than I expected. Everybody who likes radio, should have this toolbar. It's worth a 5 star rating for sure. I'm very surprised it's not more popular but it's kind of new. I'm glad I found it.

Cons

I'd list them if I could think of any.
