A challenge...

I'll bet that YOU cannot uninstall your Google Toolbar and go without it for 30 days.

This would also include all access to the PageRankô indicator during that time period.

No I can't... In fact, I am even going to install right now since PR has been updated :)

How much, P1R? ;-)

I haven't had the toolbar installed on ANY machine for over a year and haven't missed it. And surprisingly, no withdrawal symptoms. Have only had inadvertent run-ins with any green pixel indicator since. Makes life much easier and more pleasant.

I find that basically ignoring PR helps me concentrate on all the other facets that are just as or more important. I think everybody should give your challenge a shot.

I use the Toolbar every hour that I am on the computer which can run up to 10 hours a day.

Not just for search but also accessing images & news, printing pages, spell check. etc. etc.

It is an invaluable tool.

I'm sure I could find alternatives for everything it does but it's neat having everything at hand in one tool.

This offer only applies to those who have the Google Toolbar currently installed, the longer the better! ;)

Hehehe, imagine that. I doubt that I could get one avid toolbar user to give it up for 30 days, not one. Plus, it would be too high maintenance to make sure the user didn't violate the rules of the bet. ;)

Disable the PR indicator for 30 days. ;)

I use the toolbar everyday but I do usually have the PR indicator switched off. Google search and highlighting using the toolbar is too good to give up. I have just gone and switched the green bar off again :)

Aw shucks, thought I might be able to get at least a beer out of it.
