Andy Poole releases his Google toolbar for RISC OSGoogle.com requires no introduction, being the internet's definitive search engine, you can literally find anything on it.
Which is why Andrew Poole has today released his Google Toolbar for RISC OS. This application sits quietly on your desktop and fires off queries to google.com via your web browser whenever you want to look something up.
"The program is a copy of the Google Toolbar which has been available for Windows computers running Internet Explorer for some time, and allows you to search the web, search for images, search the Usenet archive and the web directory from your desktop", explains Andy in his announcement.
The toolbar is known to work with all RISC OS browsers except Fresco, although this is being looked in to.
