    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Re: Firefox GoogleBar

    The post above refers to the Google Toolbar (for Firefox) made by Google.

    There is an open source toolbar, "Googlebar", made by Firefox fans.

    The Google Toolbar website does, in fact, mention their open source competition at the end of the page.

    Re: Firefox GoogleBar

    Seems we could do with a comparative review! Has one been done anywhere? Will the Googlebar team now give up, having "encouraged" Google to develop their own version for Firefox?

    I have used Googlebar on Firefox for almost as long as I've been using Firefox, and am very happy with it...

    Re: Firefox GoogleBar

    I do not use either of the toolbars but checking the description of both there are several differences in features offered, most noticeable are the extra features offered by Google's own product.

    The third-party Googlebar project has focused on customization and providing an extensive list of features primarily related to searching.

    The Google Toolbar has many features relating to searching but also includes extra features such as a spell-checker, auto-fill, autolink and word translator. There are spell checking and auto-fill extensions available for Firefox but the Google Toolbar offers an alternative to them.
