The Official Google Blog has announced that the Google Toolbar 5 is now available for Firefox and has many cool new features. One such feature is Autofill, which acts as a password manager and can auto-fill forms with credit card information and other personal details.
Google Gadgets has also been added to the toolbar, so you can navigate to some of your favorite Google properties quickly -- at the click of a button. The blog post explains:
For example, you can add the YouTube gadget to your Toolbar. When you want to have a quick break from work, click on the YouTube icon and search or view videos in a box that pops down from the Toolbar, without leaving the web page you are on. Close that box when you're done with it (or when your manager starts walking towards your cube).
According to the release notes, the Toolbar also comes with improved features such as Web History, Autolink, and more.
