Google Toolbar Celebrates 8th Birthday with New Release

There are two new things happening in the Google Toolbar world: the toolbar is now officially 8 years old (Happy Birthday, Google Toolbar!) and what better way to mark the occasion than to launch a new software version? The Beta version of Google Toolbar 5 that was released to the public last year is now complete; it has reached stable, final status. The software is specially crafted to work with Internet Explorer; Mozilla Firefox users will for the time being have to contend with using the beta toolbar.

Albert Bodenhamer comments: “Over the years, we've been proud to see several of the features we've pioneered integrated into web browsers as well as other websites. We're encouraged by this progress, but this doesn't mean that our mission is complete.”


Here are the features that Google Toolbar 5 Final for Internet Explorer has to offer:

- The Button Gallery offers a large selection of, well, buttons. Choose the ones you want to use from the ready-made selection, or add your custom ones.
- The AutoFill feature allows you to set up multiple profiles, which will come in handy when you do your work and personal web browsing.
- The toolbar already comes with language support for 40 different languages, but that hasn’t stopped the developers from adding a translation feature. Thanks to this feature, translating any page into English is always just one click away.
- The search box has been enhanced. What this means is that as you type in a query, the toolbar will try to meet you halfway and will display a list of suggestions (based on other Google searches). If your spelling is a bit off, corrections will be thrown your way also.
- It is possible to access the toolbar from various locations as long as you take the time to synchronize some settings online.
