Google Adds Gadgets, Roaming, & Bad URL Help To The Google Toolbar: Version Five Is Out
Google Blogoscoped reports Google released a new version of the Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer. The new version is version five and has new features like integration with Google Gadgets, a “roaming” feature to keep your toolbar settings on any computer you might use, and navigation error handing features.
Google has posted a YouTube video demonstrating some of those features:

Postscript From Danny: Browse By Name is listed as a new feature, but Google’s had this since version two, from what I can see. This is where if you just enter words into your browser, you get back a list of search results rather than being sent to a “best guess” domain. For example, enter “used cars” into the address bar of a browser, and the browser often combines the terms and slaps on a .com, making domainers very happy. With Browse By Name, the Google Toolbar serves back Google search results, instead.
Postscript from Barry: The Google press release on this release is now available for viewing.
