    Hey everyone!
    This is my attempt to make the Google Bar a little less obtrusive in XP's Internet Explorer.


    Had to get rid of NAV from IE, but I rarely ever use it from that location.
    Who can do better?
    Show me!

    I prefer typing "g whatevercrap" instead of having a big ugly toolbar lol. I guess that would be the ultimate less obtrusive then having the toolbar since you only type a lousy extra 2 keys

    Ah ha
    But that's where your wrong!
    I don't think it's ugly anymore, and it's way more useful than typing an extra 2 letters.

    The only buttons I left on Google were Web Search, Site Search, and Image Search.
    I rarely ever translate a page, and who cares about the spyware add-ins (page rank, etc)?
    Makes a nice fit.

    btw, anyone who uses Google, either via website or Toolbar, should go here and find out what they're actually doing
    with your searches.

    You know
    I've often thought of the power of Google and clicked on your links immediately when I saw them.
    @Article
    If we're all very lucky, one of the other three will offer some competition within several years...
    That's a fact!
    Imagine the power?
    I haven't finished reading it all, but just had to make a quick comment.

    Good work with the google bar!
    That's the kind of posts I wanna see
    Btw, I really like the highlight button.
    It helps cut through all the crap on the search page.

    Oh Yeah
    I see you like a very clean IE Bar.
    I like it, and will be making a few changes based on yours.
    But I like as much functionality crammed into it as possible.

    You know... If you had popup stopper companion installed instead of popup stopper pro, you wouldn't need that google tool bar. The companion has a hotlink button in the middle of the browser bar that allows you to hotlink or bookmark specific pages and jump to them very quickly. It looks like you also don't have the IE cleaning tools that popup stopper companion provides. You can clear cookies, history, recycle bin, cache, and more from IE.

    Your making something out of nothing. Google.com does not HIDE what they are doing. They inform you that they would like to know what site's you visit, so that they can make pageRank work and earn some money through advertising. You can turn off ALL of the reporting features, extremely easily, without registy modifications.
