Although it's really just a means to access a series of search site, this free "toolbar" can still be a valuable starting point for looking up a name or address.
People Search and Public Record Toolbar does attach an extra toolbar to your browser, but there's only one button with a pull-down menu on the bar and a lot of wasted space. The drop-down menu includes a variety of links for helping you locate a specific person. There are links to perform a reverse phone number search or locate addresses, ZIP codes or even sex offenders. Each link on the toolbar took us to its corresponding Web page with the exception of the Google reverse address link. It took us to the Google main page, not the reverse address page. You won't find any customization options, and you can't add any extra links to the drop-down menu or extra buttons to fill in the rest of the blank toolbar.
If you're interested in searching for specific people and addresses, this free add-on offers a helpful grouping of links to help you in your searches. If your browser is already packed with toolbars, you might be better of bookmarking the sites this program links to.
People Search and Public Record Toolbar is a handy menu tool for investigators, reporters, legal professionals, real estate agents, online researchers and anyone interested in doing their own basic people searches and public record lookups as well as background research. Find past friends, relatives, classmates, coworkers, military buddies or do background research on people and businesses. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
