AOL Launches Search Toolbar

AOL has released a new search toolbar. It's available for Internet Explorer, Firefox and Flock. The toolbar is dark blue and sort of recedes into the browser, which makes it stand out against other toolbars.

Once the toolbar is installed, the browser relaunches with options for adding buttons to the toolbar. There's a nice selection from social media, news sites, shopping sites, etc.

One thing I did not like is that the installation closed Firefox without prompting me if I wanted all my tabs relaunched. I did. They did not reappear again. On a heavy news day, where a blogger has several tabs open, this would have been a bit of a nightmare. Thankfully, today has been on the light side.

Here's a look at the toolbar:
