Hmmm. There's a demo there for you to test their findings, and a download available for the 1.1.58 version - but not from the google site.

I'd like to hear what GG says. Evidently mine has upgraded to 1.1.60 already.

There was a discussion about this a short time ago....not sure exactly where, but if you do a search I'm sure you can find it. The toolbar updates automatically which has both pros and cons.
