MSN Toolbar for Firefox

well, it'd be helpful if it *did* exist

toolbar.msn.com seems to show that the MSN Toolbar is only available for MS IE. While this's not surprising, it's still frustrating.

Is there one available somwhere I don't know about? Or, has anyone made their own version?

Edit: and I note that Alexa doesn't have one available either, and doesn't plan to make one. Looks like they'd rather Mozilla do the footwork [pages.alexa.com]. They do point to some extensions that pull some Alexa data.

Right, but given the M in MSN I doubt it can happen. What functionality are you looking for? There's lots of extensions for FF, including GreaseMonkey which is a kind of mega-extension that lets you custom program many things.

I'm not sure what other features MSN toolbar provides, but you can add MSN as an option in the Firefox search box;

True, and that's mainly what I'd need it for anyway. Thanks!
