    I despise them.
    When I test a new app and a toolbar is included, they both get the boot.

    I guess everyone's answer is browser related which in fact wasn't the poll question. ;)

    Google

    Because it's extremely useful :thumb:
    Buttons for my favourite websites.
    Bookmarks in case my computer breaks.. I've got my bookmarks backed up.
    Spellings :oops: Very rare that I use IE :rolleyes: But when I do... Google checks my spellings for me.
    Email .. Know when I've got one.

    Just... Useful! :D

    I use the Web of Trust (WOT) toolbar, for its user ratings/warnings of websites.

    But that is it.

    Toolbars were usefull, when they started, because they included search bar, but since it is integrated in all browsers, they just take space. Button extensions are better now.

    I also think toolbars are a waste of space man!!
    Specially with Chrome, i like to have as much viewable space as possible and good functionality in a simple window = Chrome :D

    No toolbar except one combined toolbar with the menu, navigation, and open/maximize/close buttons on my Firefox. It's very customized only showing essential parts and combined all menus to a button.
    Also have an All-in-One Sidebar full of bookmarklets.

    I have a 24-inch widescreen.
