The Google toolbar is one of the only utilities I allow on my computers. It’s so handy that I’m willing to let it take up a bit of valuable screen real estate.
Google will be announcing a new version of the toolbar, with one extraordinary feature: a built-in free popup blocker. That’s bad news for the legitimate popup blocking programs (one well-reviewed program is IHatePopups, a ten dollar program from the same company that makes the wonderful IHateSpam). But perhaps it will keep people from installing the evil Earthlink Total Access package (see below).
