Except that then all the viewers with Yahoo! and AOhelL would be skipping their home page (which is Y! and AOL). Probably not gonna win any friends among the higher ups with the various portals. I love it though.
Since Google has so many strategic partnerships with other companies they should make the Deskbar available via companies like AOL and Yahoo. It would have millions of users in months.
