Google Toolbar Version 4 Beta Released

Google has released a beta of the latest version of their Toolbar for Internet Explorer. New features include:

  • results-as-you-type search box featuring listings from your Google search history, Google suggest, and more
  • customized buttons (add one for Gmail, Labs, etc.)
  • a “send to” feature which allows you to “share web pages via email, text message (SMS), or blog.

Another new feature which I found to be most interesting is “bookmarks.”  This appears, at least on first impression, to be a del.icio.us-esque feature allowing you to access your bookmarks from anywhere – so long as you’re logged into your Google account.

More details about these features can be found at the Google Toolbar home page.

These features are currently listed on the Mozilla/Firefox Toolbar page as well but the Download Now button seems to be only offering version 3.
