Toolbar add-ons are a dime a dozen nowadays, so the bar is high if you want your toolbar to stand out above the rest. Unfortunately, ArtRev.com Toolbar doesn't even come close, especially since most of its features don't work.
The humdrum interface spreads a string of buttons across your Internet Explorer window. All the usual features are there--pop-up blocker, highlighter, and a zoom button--and they all performed well during testing. I wish we could say the same thing for the rest of this toolbar's features. The empty recycle bin, clear history, and clear cache features failed to work, with the latter freezing our computer. A password-protected parental control feature is offered, but when we activated it, IE instantly shut down. Oh, and as if it couldn't get any worse, there are no customization options.
It doesn't look good or work well, and though it may be free, the ArtRev.com Toolbar is an add-on you can do without.
The ArtRev.com Toolbar is a fantastic toolbar software designed specifically for Internet Explorer users. The toolbar integrates together with Internet Explorer 6.0 or later versions, adding a set of productivity tools that make your web experience more productive. The ArtRev.com Toolbar has many valuable features and benefits. It is distributed free of charge but is subject to a license agreement.
Here are some of its features: Search the Web faster and smarter with one-click search. Perform a regular Web search or search for images, audio, or videos - all from your browser. Search for current news from major news providers. Zoom in and out of Web pages so you can read even the smallest text. Take JPEG image snapshots of any Web page and save it to your computer; all in one click. Parental control feature blocks access to offensive material. Great for parents who want to limit access to adult or offensive content. Version 1 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
