Google Updates Search Toolbar

This past Wednesday, Google announced and released its newest version of the Google Toolbar, a web-searching toolbar with a trio of new utilities. Earlier versions of the toolbar allowed Internet users to search the Web from a static box on their Web browser and helped to block annoying pop-up ads.

This new version includes features that will allow users to automatically check their spelling in Web forms, translate words from English into several languages, and add Web links to certain plain text. For example, an address could be enhanced with a hypertext link to its location on a map, with the click of a button on the toolbar.

I haven't had too much time to play around with these new features, but I did find the look and feel to be much like the older versions. My guess is, if you liked the previous versions of the Google toolbar, you'll enjoy this option-enhanced version as well.
