New Google Toolbar blocks pop-up and Mac users

June 29, 2003 at 5:17 by adverblog Comments

Last week Google has launched Google Toolbar 2.0. It presents some new features like a pop-up blocker, and a Blog-this button that will work for Blogger users.
The announced problem with the pop-up blocker is that it blocks every kind of pop-ups, not just the advertising ones. Furthermore it will not be able to stop Gator advertising.
The polemics on the new Toolbar go further if we look at the blog-this feature that has raised a lot of concern between blogging services and technology providers in competition with Blogger.
I really look forward to test it, however I will have to wait until Monday, when I get back to work. The new toolbar in fact doesn’t work on Mac. Like many other people, I’m a big Google fan, however I have been really disappointed by the lack of consideration for Mac users´┐Ż

    May be a good reason to stop using Macs. I have to use Macs in school because the sick things are discounted and the school gets silly software for this duck OS only and have to use it. Ugh!

    Stop using a Mac for a Google Toolbar? What are you? On CRACK?
    Crazy fool.

  4. I use google for ad words and am thinking of putting in a google search box on my site. I need to check my page ranking on google but cannot unless I change to a pc, and why would I want to do a stupid thing like that?

    I’d rather forget google than for-go my MAC but why should I have to?
    doesn’t google have the techno-sence to be compatable with the best
    computer on the planet?
