Google kills Toolbar for Firefox 5

Location: Newcastle, NSW. Australia. Newcastle NSW, Australia

Are there big Browser changes going on? I've, apparently, missed most of the news, however, Pocket-lint, the self-professed "...leading independent consumer tech and gadgets site in the UK covering all the latest tech news, reviews, features and much more... " seems to be on par with what's going on - especially at Google - and recently reported:

Google kills Toolbar for Firefox 5

Further down the report is a very interesting paragraph -

"For Firefox users, many features that were once offered by Google Toolbar for Firefox are now already built right into the browser. Therefore, while Google Toolbar for Firefox works on versions up to and including Firefox 4 only, it will not be supported on Firefox 5 and future versions."

Perhaps this is another reason why I wonder about the rapid releases of Firefox Versions. It only seems like yesterday, that I was happy with V3.16.1, then, before I knew it V4 was out, then recently, V5. Go figure?

I'm not 100% happy with Chrome, but I figured I may be better-off with it in light of the fact that it's Google, Blogger is Google (now), and my email is Google, and everything else I use, apart from my computer and OS, is Google - oh, I do have a Colgate toothbrush! haha.

Interesting times!

LOL on the Colgate toothbrush comment! DH and I were discussing how Google wants to take over the world yesterday. It's starting to feel a little socialist, and I worry that pretty soon they'll also be exposing users' privacy, as well.

I don't much care for the UI of Chrome, but I suppose I should start getting used to it and submit. ;)

I couldn't resist that one!
Privacy issues will always be of concern, unfortunately. We can only hope.
