Further proof that Google is quite possibly the greatest company ever, whose inventions rank up there in usefulness with the wheel and fire: The Google Deskbar.
The major reason I’ve stuck with IE (outside of simple laziness) is that it’s the only browser capable of using the Google Toolbar. Now with the Deskbar, I don’t think that reason is quite so compelling.
The Deskbar basically gives you Google from your Windows taskbar, popping up search results in a small preview “mouse hover” window, which you can then send to a browser with a click if you wish.
It’s very, very cool. Check it out.
