This is one of those tools that rivals the usefulness of a beer bottle opener on your key ring: the Google Deskbar.
If you’re not Googling when you search the web, well, you just ain’t searching the web. Plain n’ simple. But aside from being the most comprehensive search engine, I use Google for all kinds of stuff: spell checking, thesaurus, news, looking for images…I mean, if it’s happening on the web, it’s happening on Google. Or perhaps it’s more accurate to say that it ain’t happenin’ on the web unless it’s happenin’ on Google. Yeah, that’s it.
So, anyway, back to the Google Deskbar. Not to be confused with the Google Toolbar that fits sveltly into our browser so Google is always there for a quick search while we’re surfing. The Deskbar is kinda the same idea except they cut the umbilical to Internet Explorer. Now you can have Google built right into your desktop toolbar. Ya hey, you don’t even need to open a browser to Google something. For those of us on a broadband connection (and if’n you ain’t, you awwta be, suckah!), it’s Google-manna from heaven.
Ok, happy Googling!
