New Google Custom Search Button Popup

Products,Search by on March 27, 2007 at 6:45 pm

I saw this popup today while I was searching our internal Trac repository:

I’m running Firefox & Google Toolbar 3.0.2.

This prompt was generated when I placed my cursor in the search box. Presumably the Google toolbar recognized the box and was prepared to auto-generate the button. I generally don’t like Toolbars and addins doing things to my browse experience without my explicit permission, but this didn’t bother me. In fact, it made me realize what a useful feature this could be.

    my favorite google toolbar statistic: each toolbar user is worth ~$15-20 per year to google. im going to go out on a limb here and say that google’s cost per install is much lower than $15.
