GoogleBar

Finally got around to updating some of my Firefox plugins, and noticed a neat new enhancement to the Google toolbar. When you’re typing in the search bar, they added a ‘suggest’ feature (where it finishes words and complete search phrases for you), and even better (since suggest isn’t really new), is it shows you the number of results. (googlebar image) Even though there is a google search bar built in to Firefox, I still really like the toolbar. Notably, I use the "search this site" button a lot. Even when sites do have a search function, Google often just provides better results. Pagerank display is good, and the highlight function (that will highlight search terms on the page) is really nice on long pages. If you haven’t tried it before, I do recommend installing the google bar for a few days. It does take up some screen real-estate, but I think it’s worth it.
