Yahoo has introduced a new version of the Yahoo Toolbar today. It runs on Internet Explorer 6+ and Firefox (as a beta).

"The new Yahoo! Toolbar now offers greater customization and more immediate access to the information you care about most from across the entire web – not just Yahoo! sites," says Burke Culligan, Senior Director of Yahoo Front Doors.

One of the new features of the toolbar is a "preview and go" feature, which lets you see small previews of your favorite sites in a drop down window, showing real-time info without having to leave the page you’re on. "Customize your toolbar with dozens of apps from Yahoo! and across the rest of the web, so you can check on your multiple email inboxes (Yahoo! and AOL), your eBay listings, the latest news from People.com or USA Today, stock portfolios, and even your local weather or movie showtimes," suggests Culligan.

The toolbar also comes with a faster search tool. It incorporates technology from Inquisitor, and offers query suggestions, search history, and the ability to directly search other sites from the search box.

Users can also easily customize the toolbar by adding and subtracting apps. You can choose from the apps in Yahoo’s gallery, add your own, edit the layout, and customize your search settings.

    I was waiting to see Yahoo’s response to the launch of Bing. I haven’t used Yahoo in a while and so I’m curious how this adds to the toolbar they previously had. I thought they might try to integrate a realtime search feature, but I guess not.
