[...] why isn't the google tool bar available for netscape?
There is a (independently released and maintained) version of the Google toolbar for Mozilla / Firebird on MozDev, but it doesn't include the proprietary feature for calculating PageRank (obviously), and doesn't have a popup blocker (since popup blocking is native to the browsers).
because the blokers often preclude the legitimate use of pop-ups in a web site
There are far better ways to open a legitimate (read: other than commercial] popup than to do it on open.window.
Even the built in Dreamweaver MMopenBrowserWindow works and won't be blocket by popup-blockers weather in Mozilla or the Google or Alexa toolbar.
