Editors' Review

+

It seems as if every search engine offers an Internet Explorer toolbar that mixes pop-up blocking and e-mail functionality with its search capabilities.

Yahoo Companion Toolbar differs a bit from other add-ons since some of its features are designed to work with your registered Yahoo account. The interface is a standard toolbar. You can add or remove buttons that launch various Yahoo services, though you have to click the Refresh Toolbar option to see the changes.

In our tests, the pop-up blocker eliminated most, but not all, ads. It didn't hinder normal surfing, and the toolbar uninstalled without any problems. Yahoo users may appreciate the quick access to services Yahoo Companion Toolbar provides.

"Unresponsive and slow"

June 20, 2014  |  By bobkilmer

 |  Version: Yahoo Toolbar 7.0.5

Pros

Holds potential.

Cons

Doesn't realize it.

Summary

A Web browser is the worst of all possible application hosts and Yahoo! toolbar makes the absolute worst of it. Interface is very slow to respond; so much so that you can't remember what you were doing. Yahoo! used to specialize in minimalist, functional Web pages but it's been a long time. Very disappointing app.

"Not nearly as good as the previous versions"

April 17, 2014  |  By alf4907

 |  Version: Yahoo Toolbar 7.0.5

Pros

Keeps my bookmarks available across all my computers

Cons

Did not keep my previous settings and I had to set it up again. I can not choose my own buttons or names... I have to use what yahoo thinks I should have for buttons and labels which means that I have a few used again.

"NO THANK YOU"

January 27, 2014  |  By mzqstorm

 |  Version: Yahoo Toolbar 7.0.5

Pros

It's free to use

Cons

Not to thrilled with a program that only works when it wants to. It could be that it is incompatible with my add-ons or my themes in firefox, or maybe it doesn't like firefox. Who knows? Or maybe it is just as lame as the new yahoo home page is, that I no longer use. All in all, if it ain't broke then don't try to fix it.
BIG THUMBS DOWN ON THIS ONE AND ANYTHING YAHOO!!

"More like a Trojan or Virus than a Toolbar"

October 19, 2013  |  By Fakezekial

 |  Version: Yahoo Toolbar 7.0.5

Pros

Nothing Good

Cons

Installed without me knowing. Took over my browser, changed my home page, loaded a bunch of other stuff. Worst part is: I attempted to completely remove it from my computer, and I can't locate it anymore, but when I open a new browser window "Yahoo! Toolbar" momentarily appears in the tab, so it is still hiding on my machine somewhere.

Summary

BEWARE Yahoo! Toolbar

"This is terrible"

April 10, 2013  |  By GERRY RAINS

 |  Version: Yahoo Toolbar 7.0.5

Pros

Nothing good.

Cons

The toolbar has only five icons (I use Firefox)

Summary

This is a horrible mistake. Please go back to the old toolbar!!

Updated on May 5, 2013

Inaccuracies still plague the toolbar. If you click on their basketball icon, you get good old error 404. Fortunately this can be rectified. All-in-all the smaller icons give the user room to enter more icons and that is certainly for the best and can read them even though I am extremely near-sighted.

I'd say it's a change for the better.

"Locks the Yahoo bookmarks within the toolbar"

October 23, 2011  |  By jerrtino

 |  Version: Yahoo Toolbar 7.0.5

Pros

Easy to install.

Cons

My bookmarks are all on Yahoo bookmarks. Without any warning, Yahoo bookmarks got "upgraded" and now I cannot access my bookmarks without installing the toolbar. What is so cool about Yahoo bookmarks are exclusively on Yahoo Toolbar. It just means that you have to install this junk software.

This is crap, especially if one does not have administrator rights to install the toolbar. Honestly, I think this is just another spyware carefully repackaged to look harmless.

Summary

I regretted using Yahoo bookmarks and did not do a backup before it got "upgraded".

One would be better off using Google Chrome bookmarks.
