Go download the newest toolbar. It has hearts all over it.

good find. Like the hearts... they're kinda cute. Hmm, have they ever done anything like this before with the toolbar?

Just uninstalled the old one and loaded the '2.0.107-big/en (GGLD)' version [still (c) 2003 though] and sure it looks like a valentines version.

Same here, auto update. Had me wondering for a few seconds.

Who cares about the little hearts. If only they could have a version reminding me of say my wedding anniversary, that would really keep me out of trouble :)

...and I thought it was those Adware crap thingy's again..lol

But why does Google do all this? Whats the reason?

I remember in Christmas time, there was some kind of logo week or something, can't remember the name (Doodle [google.com]?) but yeah, Google changed the logo's everyday until a week, it was kind of a storyboard.

So, if I start to think logically..Google just created new graphics as an update for its toolbar just because it was Valentines Day? Pathetic.

Sid,
Google has always been changing thier logs and graphics for different occasions. Valentine's day, the Olympics, Einstein's Birthday, etc.

[google.com...]

Why should the toolbar be any different?

...maybe because this is the first update Google has created for their toolbar?

I wonder when the next 'occasion' toolbar update will be on.

my toolbar is showing hearts without having installed any update. either comes from server or some auto-update.

- no, I don't like auto-updating software
- no, I am not going to love Google now.

Love the hearts.
Love Google's sense of humor.
Love auto updates so I don't have to deal with it.

And nauseating. If they want to change the appearance of their home page, so be it. If I don't like it I can just avoid using Google for a day. However, with the toolbar always visible on my screen even when not using Google, I don't want to have to look at garbage whenever I browse. Time for a nasty e-mail to Google.

hmmm, does this mean I'm not loved? My toolbar didn't autoupdate. Wonder why? My husband's did though, hehe.

I didn't know what you were all talking about at first, and didn't want to download just too see.. but I just opened a fresh IE and there it is... all these funky little hearts.

I like it.. it's cute and works perfect with their special logo theme's! Do you think that the majority who will like this are the girls? :o

oh forgot to say: Happy Valentine's day to you too Google, and the rest of the folks at WebmasterWorld..

"Honey, look how I put those hearts on your Google toolbar. Aren't I sweet?"

Hearts are cute.

Hate it when someone reaches into MY system and makes changes without asking!

Guess that is one reason why I only have the G-Bar on one system. (There are other reasons too, though.)

is this a joke?
I closed all windows of IE and still no special hearts or anything. Still plain toolbar.

(maybe only newest version updates?)

My toolbar updated itself at 5 pm on valentines day.
A bit too late!

No, Its not. I (and about a million people) have seen it.

I closed all windows of IE and still no special hearts or anything. Still plain toolbar.

not sure how the update triggers, but you should consider downloading the latest version from [toolbar.google.com...] - and then again, as lukasz said - its a bit too late.

"Hate it when someone reaches into MY system and makes changes without asking!"

Ditto! I hate this, hate the look of it, the colors are lame, and it leaves me wondering what else google will be doing in the future concerning how MY IE will display and function. I will be disabling the Google toolbar if this feature cannot be turned off.

I haven't seen anyone ask this yet: CAN THIS OPTION BE TURNED OFF!?

For those that don't have this lame pink feature showing, could you let us know WHICH version of IE that you are running? (I'm running IE6)

Mine seems to have updated this morning. Any chance I can get rid of the hearts?

Questor2, Almost everybody here has IE6 installed, whether or not they use it. (some also prefer previous IE versions.)

Those who don't like the lame pink stlye (me too!) , It should go back to normal in sometime, as a Valentines Day cannot last forever..

I think a lot of you are being a tad miserable. It's only going to last one day and it is a special occasion.

At the end of the day, you install the free Google toolbar and should accept it looks how Google choose it to look. I think it is a nice harmless touch.
