Google Toolbar

  Posted on Sunday December 03, @09:21PM Pacific
Web Apps If you are a regular user of Google you'll probably want to take the Google Toolbar for a spin. The Google Toolbar gives you access to all the power on the Google search engine in your IE tool bar. The Google Toolbar allows you to run a site search, limiting the search to just the site you are looking at. Their PageRank allows you to know how popular the page you are looking at is. But, the feature that I find most useful when doing research is the Unavailable Page Snapshot. This option allows you to see a snapshot of the current page as it looked when Google last crawled it.

    There are several alternatives to the Google Toolbar. My favorite, of course, is my own little quick search deskbar, which, unlike the Google Toolbar, allows you to put a Google search box on your windows taskbar at the bottom of your screen.


    It can be found at http://notesbydave.com/toolbar/doc.htm

    The main advantage is that it saves a bunch of clicking for the common gesture: "Open New Browser"... "Search in Google"...

    But it also frees you from a Google-only view of the world and gives you the same UI acceleration for other common searches (such as white pages lookups, stock quotes, dictionary, thesaurus, etc). And some of the users say that the builtin math expression calculator is what they really use most.
