Google's got a new toolbar.
Hey, there's a BLOGGER button in my GOOGLE! Who would've thunk it? ;-)
It can also kill popups, which is a very nice feature.
HOWEVER, they haven't thought of all the sites who use pop-ups for content. Now don't get me wrong, I HATE popup ads. See this page if you need proof. But the new Google Toolbar kills all popups, including not just ads, but things related to content. That includes some that you click on and request ... and it kills TONS of Flash sites which open in new windows. They really need to work this out. (I guess that's why this is a beta, right?)
I installed the beta yesterday, and I disabled the popup killer (arguably the best feature of the new version) this morning.
Even with other beta releases, I don't think I've been this let down by Google before.
