Google Launches Toolbar Labs; My Location is First Feature

Google has given Toolbar a new experimental playground called Toolbar Labs, which is akin to Google Labs and GMail Labs. Essentially, when a Google product gets "Labs," it means users can select from among features instead of having them automatically included in an update.

With the launch of Toolbar Labs comes the first feature. "My Location" is now available via Toolbar Labs for users to add to their Toolbars.

If you're not familiar, "My Location" uses nearby wifi access points to find your location. Using that information, they can provide local results for a search.
