Google Readies Its Toolbar for Firefox

Free toolbar, available tomorrow, matches Internet Explorer version.

Google's new toolbar for The Mozilla Foundation's Firefox browser, containing almost all of the features found in Google's toolbar for Microsoft's Internet Explorer, will be available tomorrow, according to a company official.

You can download the free toolbar here starting Thursday at 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time from Google, and you can download two free extensions for Firefox here, said Sundar Pichai, product manager of client software at Google.

The Firefox toolbar will have all of the features found on the IE toolbar except for two that are already included in the Firefox browser: a pop-up blocker and browse-by-name functionality, which lets users jump to a Web site by entering its name rather than its Web address, according to Pichai.

This should be nice for FF users.

its pretty cool... FF popped up some crap and crashed after installing it, but after restarting again it works good

How's the spell checker ? The "spellbound" the spell checker extension for FF is a little clunky for me.

I need all the help I can get with spelling !  :haha:

I still see no reason to even get a goggle tool bar. Spell check. Simple free program. For IE its just a right click task. Wonder how long before every screams its spyware how do I remove it from my computer. Wait and See. That will happen. 488.gif
