Have Google Toolbar to aid horticulture searches?

    Not long ago, I found Google's toolbar.

    I think it can easily be found by searching - google, toolbar.

    Its a fast download that adds onto the viewing window - for me, the internet explorer window.

    It has a highlighter button that highlights keywords in bright yellow. This makes finding the plant names and terms much easier for me when I open a website.

    Also, that toolbar has a "page rank" meter. It will show Google's ranking of a site on a scale of 1 to 10. You can find out where your own site ranks on the scale too.

    It will only need 1/3 inch of monitor screen.

    I'll have to go back and upgrade for that pop-up blocker.

    Thanks for letting us know.

    Loaded the new version. Really nice. Love that autofill option to fast-fill in name, email, city, etc. in the fill-fields.

    I have an updated google bar and I don't have a pop-up blocker, when was it added?

    I don't know when the blocker was added, but it loaded onto my computer to replace the old version just a few days ago.

    If you go there and reselect, it will probably put it on without trouble.
