Am I the last person on earth to discover Google’s new toolbar buttons? I’ve been a huge fan (if not addict) of the Google toolbar since it came out. One reason I never switched to Firefox is that there was no Google toolbar for it (there is now). It’s that useful to me. And it’s just gotten more useful with version 4, which now allows third parties to create toolbar buttons for their own search functions. My favourites so far are Wikipedia, Encyclopedia Mythica, and (be still my bookish heart) Amazon. Typepad has also created a button that allows me to create a blog post from selected text with one click. How cool is that?
