I found many people searching for google toolbar support for google chrome, and wondering why, it is not added to google chrome yet, both being Google’s projects and very popular at that.
However, Google Is Bringing a lot of feature of Google Toolbar to Chrome by default. Very soon, we will have the translation inbuilt to chrome via a Translation Bar and for others, there are official extensions available.
I have written an article to help you get all those features back to Chrome – Google Toolbar for Chrome – Complete Guide
I also had no idea why this is so. But when I was uninstalling Google Toolbar from firefox, I kinda figured out why it is not there on Chrome yet.
Fact that we all know : We love the simple layout of Google Chrome for many reasons, and the most important reason : It gives more screen space. Google Chrome is designed to give you a better browsing experience, as far as space is concerned, and they have done this very well, and that does not come very easily … I am sure they have worked very hard on this.
If you have noticed, when Extensions are enabled, Google Chrome will not let them take more space from your screen area, that’s how they are making the extensions work too.
All this hard work, and they add Google Tool Bar to Chrome … then it will look a MESS !!
because it consumes so much from the screenspace… correct people ? Well, that should be the reason for Chrome still being away from Google Toolbar.
What Makes Me Think This Way
When you uninstall Google Toolbar on Firefox, you are supposed to tell them why you are doing that, a feedback . And one among the most common reasons listed for you to select from is, ” It’s Taking My Screen Space” ( or something similar ? ). So, I would say, Google have enough feedback from toolbar users ( who uninstalled it ? ) stating that they don’t want the google toolbar to take up more space.
So, in the current format, it’s not wise to add Google Toolbar to Chrome … what you think ?
