Better than the smiley, if a lot of people email a page to a friend, I'd give it a better indication of being a good site then clicking the smiley.
Either way, I'd love to see this feature on googlebar.
I always assumed that it didnt rank or vote for a page - it just let google know that a page was there, so if you came across an unranked page, then you could click smiley dude and google would come along and index the page.
Kinda like the Alexa toolbar - if your at an unindexed page, it will say "rank this page", or something to that affect.
Goddam pushy toolbars (in the voice of Mike Myers doing a Scottish accent), "ooh, this page is good, this page is bad, how about trying these pages. And that wee smiley bugger with his wee beady eyes saying, 'click me, click me'".
I want less toolbars and less options. :)
For example, there could be the basic toolbar - with basic features, like there are now, for the regular user with a few more extras. The next level could have page rank, click-throughs from Google, and several site-specific things like voting, and other tools. The advanced level could then have more detailed stuff which could be useful for webmasters and web-guru's...
My point being, to be able to personalise the toolbar would please many more people and increase the usage of the toolbar. I think this thread's gonna be useful to the Google folks, but please don't try and stick loads of features in there that nobody will use.
Anyway, just a few thoughts... :)
hmmm...how about "turn off ads"....just kidding!
I'll third the Mac option and Opera! Hell, if you get it right for Opera you'll make it easy to go cross platform wouldn't you? Including the *nix systems?
Please, GoogleGuy and Teoma - I'm trying to move away from M$!
For IE, ctrl+tab takes to address bar.
It would be very useful to have a hotkey to search field in Google Toolbar...something like ctrl+alt+(some intuitive combo like GO)
This way, I don't have to go...
ctrl+tab...google ctrl+enter...type in my search term...then enter
With a hotkey, it would be like...
ctrl+alt+(?)..type in my search term...then enter
Just being picky here:)
I would like to see Google have some sort of traffic estimations, similar to Alexa. I do not like their toolbar, but I put in because it gives me more information (although somewhat innaccurate). Plus I don't think Alexa toolbar users serve as good sample space compared to all Google toolbar users, so I would trust Google's numbers much more.
I agree with this and also with the 12 users have voted for this site and 8 have found it useful idea
