Google Fighting for icon space on the desktop is so 2001. The new frontier on a virgin PC is the browser, and Internet companies like Google are jostling for space on the browsers of new PCs. Dell and Google are evaluating a partnership in which the Google Toolbar, Google Desktop Search and a Google-designed Dell home page are included on new Dell PCs, a Dell representative confirmed.

Toolbars

Very rarely do toolbars make sense and not become annoying. I think they take up too much space, but if its limited to just one catch all toolbar then its good. Its when people have the google toolbar, yahoo toolbar, and the spyware bar all loaded that really annoys me. Can't say I'm crazy about all the extra software that gets loaded on a Dell either, even if it is soon to be Google.
