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.

... Are the bane of man.

No 3rd-party toolbar has ever touched my desktop, and I never plan on letting it happen in the future. I'm sure many of you would agree with me here.

I use the Google Toolbar for Firefox. It saves me a lot of time when a lot of Google services I use are a click away. Plus, the ability to spell check forms I fill out online with Google Toolbar spell-check is a real time saver.

Yea, toolbars are pretty annoying in and of themselves.
