Google Releases New Firefox Toolbar
Google has released the second version of its Firefox toolbar. New features are:
Google Suggest-like auto-completing search box (previously available as an extension)
RSS feed autodetection, with the option to add feeds to your Google Personalized Homepage, Bloglines, Firefox Live Bookmarks, My Yahoo, Newsgator or Pluck
Firefox’s mailto: links can open up a compose window in Gmail
Did I mention that I will always hate the way Firefox installs things?
I installed the toolbar, and it seems solid. Its good and customizable, and the layout options are a nice addition. The Google blog says:
As a dedicated Firefox user, I think that the latest version enhances an already innovative browser. Meanwhile, you IE Toolbar 4 fans may notice that the feature sets aren’t identical. That’s because Firefox and IE users have different needs. Rest assured that we’re working to get the most popular features in both versions.
