The Magic of Google Toolbar

Google Toolbar

Did you know that you can easily use Google Toolbar to find your search terms within a web page using the highlight button? If not, have a look at this short video? There is no problem if you have several different terms as they will all show up in different colours. Very useful for searching long, text based sites and for correcting HTML code!

This is just one of the many useful tools that can be added to Google Toolbar. My favourites include the spell check, translate and autofill.

As well as this, you can add buttons for one click access to your other google accounts such as gmail, google docs, calendar, groups etc. Use the button gallery to search for items that are useful for you - hundreds to choose from.

You can now even add buttons that support google gadgets - when you click on the button, the gadget will pop down from the Toolbar, no matter what site you are on and close when you are done with it.

And, did you know you can access all of your Toolbar settings and custom buttons from any computer, no matter where?  Just make sure you select the option to 'Access your Toolbar settings everywhere' in the Toolbar sign-in menu.

Then, when you sign in to Google Toolbar on any computer where it is installed, your settings will be updated and any changes you make during that session will be saved.

Powerful stuff indeed!!!
