I'm always searching for tools - online tools that will let me perform multiple task with a minimum of effort and downloads. My days of downloading one tool for one function are over. For awhile, all the clutter made me feel powerful, like " look at all my stuff, and look at what I can do with it..". A window full of icons were like a chest full of military ribbons, each signifying that I had performed some task, or achieved some accomplishment.
Then I found A-Toolbar.
I already had two additional toolbars - one to help me with my multiple searches, and another to help me get a quick idea as to the importance of a particular site. When I found A-Toolbar I said "no more, I've got enough". But
as I began to read the list of features immediately available to users, I knew that I had found the one toolbar that could be all inclusive to the point where I could comfortably uninstall the other two.
Rather than get into a long narrative, let me simply list some of the features of this toolbar:
Metasearch, Desktop search, Web catalog, Latest news, RSS Feed reader, Spam remover, Popup killer, Form filler, Password keeper, Password revealer, Memory defragmenter, System information, Dictionary, Language translator, Links manager, World clock, Personal reminder, Stock Quotes, Weather forecast, Games, Biorhythm, Horoscope, WhoIs, DNS lookup, Ping, Port scanner, Link popularity, Position analysis, Keyword density checker,
URL info, Alexa ranking, and many others - 50 in all.
A-Toolbar is a 2.3MB download, compatible with Windows 95/98/ME/2000/NT/XP, and sits quietly at the bottom of your screen. It can be easily hidden, for the purist among you.
A-ToolBar states that they have no spyware or adware, and are proud of their Softpedia "100% Free" Award.
