When it comes to browsers and Google, its tool bar for IE and Firefox is something google started offering well before Chrome and Google Tool bas has a good amount of popularity among internet users. Still when Google created its own browser, they did not add Google Tool bar support by default.Even when I tried to install it, the toolbar website said it does not support Google Chrome !
Well, they did add Google Gears support, which is another browser related application developed by Google. Google gears, is not really popular when compared to The toolbar.
So, what does it mean ?
Google is not going to work more on google toolbar. May be we will hear someday that they stopped development on this project, like they did for google notebook. But Gooogle Gears, is something they want to work more on. That is why you see Gmail enabling offline feature and Google Calender going offline with Google Gears support.
Do you need Google Toolbar on Chrome ?
I have installed the google toolbar on firefox, but I have disabled it in the view menu. I enable it only when I need to check pagerank of some website. I do not use toolbar for anything more than that. But for people who use google toolbar, Google chrome is not very friendly until they enable it on the browser ….
Are you a google toolbar user waiting for the feature on google chrome ? Will you start using Chrome if they enable this feature ?
Update: Google seems to be more interested in adding Google Toolbar features directly into Chrome browser and Chrome OS Chromebooks. Most of the features are already available on Chrome and additional features are available as extensions. Read the complete coverage on Google Toolbar features on Chrome here.
