for Internet Explorer allows for custom search buttons, which can benefit both
site owners and searchers. I wanted to highlight a few new resources since then.

    some cool Google Toolbar buttons that Aaron Wall has
    posted. There are a variety to
    give you link popularity stats, with some complex stuff to remove forum links
    that might be discounted. I especially like the domain age, competitive
    analysis, blog analysis and some handy tools.
     
  • The Google
    Toolbar Button Gallery
    has a growing number of buttons in various
    categories, ready for use. The

    tools
    category has some especially shiny stuff, like being able to visit a
    site anonymously.

    is an easy way for those using Movable Type blogs to get their
    own buttons with blog feed updates embedded in them.
     

  • Getting Started with the Google Toolbar API
    is an overview of how you can
    click and make your own buttons for any site, useful for searchers and
    webmasters alike. Webmasters will want to dive into the

    full documentation
    for further instructions.

Postscript: Aaron’s added a number of buttons for various search blogs, including our own. Be sure to check out the logo next to the search button for Google’s Matt Cutts’s blog.
