Windows Internet Explorer 7 & Google Toolbar

  Zak 15:58 01 Nov 06

Now that IE7 has a customisable search box any point having the Google Toolbar installed?

I still have it but I am seriously thinking of removing. Google TB Pop up blocker not necessary as IE7 has one, and I tend not to use any of the additional. Occasionally the highlighter is useful.

I am interested as to what your views are, pros and cons.

I use the basic IE7 configuration since it is so easy to select different search engine for the search function.

I also do not use the menu bar since all the options are available through the drop downs on the command icons. I like simple screen to look at.

Fishing for views please.

I haven't actually uninstalled the Google toolbar (yet) but I have unticked it in View > Toolbars. I have the IE search box set to Google as the default and it works just fine.

I think the only reason for keeping the Google toolbar is if you use its features like highlight search terms and so on.
