Google Toolbar Updated

By Nathan Weinberg

Google has quietly updated their Internet Explorer Toolbar 4, announcing on the front page that it “Now supports IE7″. That’s right, ladies and gents of the early adopter world: You can now safely install the toolbar without having anything to worry about with Microsoft’s latest beta browser.

In addition, the toolbar has some bug fixes, and a slightly more polished look with some UI tweaks. Also, the toolbar’s bookmark feature can now import all your IE bookmarks, giving you a great way to get started building a Google Search History bookmark list, if you haven’t already.

To remind those who didn’t install the last beta, the big new features in this beta toolbar: You can add custom search buttons for basically any type of search that exists. You get a Google Suggest-type search box with deeper search suggestions, spell correction and search history. You can send pages to Blogger, Gmail or SMS.

The new Toolbar is 643 kb, 16k larger than the previous version of Toolbar 4, meaning they did some good fixes and additions, but pretty efficiently. The new version is 4.0.629.4924.
