This toolbar is giving me nothing but gip! I keep getting page not found all over the shop, and having to press refresh!

I finally uninstalled mine because nothing was working - search, Page Rank button - yadda yadda.

A note about the Google toolbar from WebPosition Gold:
"Unfortunately, Webmasters have reported that this toolbar records a cookie on your hard drive that can be used to track your surfing activities and could be used to associate you to the IP address you use, even if you have a dynamic IP. At least in one instance, it's been reported that Google used this cookie feature to track down the author of a program that reported PageRank without needing to run the toolbar program. Google demanded that the author remove the program from his site. Therefore, although the toolbar can be useful, you should be extremely cautious about using it. Google could use it to track your activities or associate such activities to other things you do such as submissions. If you wish to play it safe, consider avoiding the use of the Google toolbar."

My "Translate" button seems to have disappeared, which I find very disappointing. It was one of the best features on the toolbar. You can still translate, but now you have to go to copy the URL to be translated, go to the langage tools page, paste it and then you get the translation. I liked the two-click access I had before.
