Google has updated its Firefox toolbar with a nifty new feature: a personalized tab page. If you use Firefox and conduct tabbed browsing, you know that when you open a new tab, a blank page comes up.
But with this new update, Google toolbar users will now see a Google branded page with thumbnails of their favorite sites, which can be edited. They can click on a thumbnail to go directly to the site shown.
Privacy worry warts, take ease. All of the information about favorite sites remains locally on the browser. It doesn't get sent to Google.
