Re: Google Toolbar

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.
