The New Google Toolbar

I am not a big fan of toolbars but, as toolbars go, the Google Toolbar that came off beta this week, is pretty good. I have to admit it’s installed in my browsers.
Ben Lewis, the toolbar product manager at Google says that his favorite feature is custom buttons. There are over 600 buttons already in the button library and you can roll your own too. You can create special buttons to do custom searches, feeds, bookmarks, blogs and more.
This might be a good productivity tool. At a minimum it would cut keystrokes in half for oft-visitied sites. Works for both MSIE and Firefox. If you’re promoting certain features like your library search site, intranet, licnesed resurces, etc. you might want to consider installing your buttons with the enterprise edition.
