Google announced a hat trick of small enhancements to previously existing services. Google Toolbar can now help you remember that long lost favorite website and Gmail can let you sass emailers in a number of different languages.

The newest Googlet Toolbar beta has been tweaked to include a search box that suggests those bookmarks a searcher has long forgotten about alongside relevant search queries.

“And since bookmark negligence seems to be a worldwide phenomenon,” says software engineer Jenny Zhang, ” he Google Toolbar beta for Internet Explorer is now available in 16 additional languages: UK English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Dutch, Brazilian Portuguese, Finnish, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Japanese, Korean, and Russian.”

Speaking of additional languages, Google launched Arabic and Hebrew language interfaces for Gmail for a total of 40 languages supported by the email service.

This morning, Google also announced a new feature called “Reply by chat” that allows email receivers to tag senders if they’re online at the moment. Once the chat window is open, it works similar to the conversation grouping of email, as chat history will be saved and grouped as a conversation with that person, for viewing later.
