What’s on your Toolbar?

Recent news of the Google Toolbar hijacking 404 pages got me a bit curious. Are people still using toolbars until now? I guess the obvious answer is yes.

Obviously all these toolbar fanaticism is driven by only two things — ad money and spying data gathering.


So, what toolbars are installed in your browser and why are they in there?

  • Google Toolbar
  • Yahoo! Toolbar
  • MSN Toolbar
  • Ask Jeeves
  • Alexa Toolbar
  • DAP
  • eBay
  • Teoma
  • Stumble Upon
  • Netcraft
  • ESPN Toolbar
  • NBA Scoreboard
  • Skype Toolbar
  • ICQ
  • Neopet
  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • Dictionary.com Toolbar
  • MySpace
  • Alta Vista
  • WindowsLive

Oh, there’s tons of them on the list. I just notice I had the Google and Stumble Upon toolbar and yet I don’t use them.

    I am always against any toolbars. Mostly it slows down my connection (I still use dial-up). But there is one toolbar that I have permitted in on my firefox browser – the one from workabroad.ph because they had no RSS feed.

    I use Google toolbar on Firefox mainly for the one-click gmail button, sometimes I also use the Image and News search buttons when I’m a bit lazy.

    Other toolbars have been banished because they are not only useless and hog system resources, they also eat up screen space.

    google and urban dead toolbar

  9. Jaypee says:

    I only have the StumbleUpon toolbar which I use once in a while. :D

    If you have toolbars on your browser without you installing them yourself, it came with a program that you installed. Next time, make sure to read first before installing a program.

    Web developer toolbar is still the most productive toolbar for me.

  13. BrianB says:

    My screen is low enough as it is, but I do have stumbleupon and google, which gives me a translator, autolink and PR. I do have other toolbars on the options section.

  14. I have Google Toolbar and Stumble Upon. Been using those two since it first came out, and use both regularly.

    Other than that, I also have Yoono and the WebDeveloper toolbar.

    This is for Firefox 2 btw. Waiting for these toolbars to be compatible with Firefox 3.
