I don't have much to say about this. I was chatting with a few folks about this, who will remain nameless, and this is what they had to say about it.
my life is complete! the new google toolbar is out!!!
Google is launching its third rev of its toolbar today. It's Windows only, and it's a beta:
"It's free and takes seconds to install." screw it then - I don't have time for that ;)
There's no need to check for new versions of Google Toolbar; updates are installed automatically, so you'll always have the latest and greatest version.
The toolbar page at Google can be found here.
