Google Toolbar 5 for Internet Explorer Released
By Tony Ruscoe
A new version of the Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer was recently launched. Some of the new features
- Google Gadgets support – “With support for live feeds and custom site search, Google Toolbar custom buttons are more than just bookmarks. Now custom buttons can even support Google Gadgets - when you click on the icon, the gadget will pop down from the Toolbar, no matter what site you are on and close when you are done with it.”
- “Roaming” toolbar settings – “Now you can access all of your Toolbar settings, bookmarks and custom buttons from any computer, no matter whether you’re at home or on the go.”
- Suggestions for navigation errors – “If you mistype a web address, instead of seeing a 404 or DNS error page, Google Toolbar will show you suggestions for the address you may have wanted as well as other navigation options.”
You can learn more about the new features by watching this video by Google product managers, Avni and Aseem. (Also available as a Director’s Cut, where they “get a little extra help”...) As usual, the Google Toolbar comes with features like auto-suggestion for search, form auto-filling, page translation tools, pop up blockers and more.
The new version is available to download from toolbar.google.com/T5/ using Internet Explorer 6+.
