    RE: google toolbar

    I tried this out, only because i only use google to search and noticed it blocks popups.

    I must admit, it works great.

    When you install the Google Toolbar, it specifically states that if you enable the advanced features that information will be sent to and from Google to your toolbar installation. In order for the advanced features to work, you have to explicitly agree to this condition by clicking on a button.

    Through this explicit act, you give permission for this communication back and forth. Sorry if you think that this is a violation of your rights but you agreed to it upon installation. If you no longer want this kind of implementation turn off the advanced features and/or uninstall the toolbar. It is as simple as that.

    // Enable pipelining:
    user_pref("network.http.pipelining", true);
    user_pref("network.http.proxy.pipelining", true);
    user_pref("network.http.pipelining.maxrequests", 100);

    Placing these in your user.js file will enable pipelining, furthing speeding things up.

    That should do it

    You can un-install it. Nothing is "free".

    Where you see "Filter", put nglayout.initialpaint.delay

    Then just double click on the result that comes up and put 0 in

    Edit; bug? With the about config thing there's not supposed to be an underscore... but for some reason it's showing up in the post

    How do you do this?

    Cripes. I never knew I was gonna be opening up such a can of worms with this topic. Guess what though? We're not alone:

    One of the more interesting replies at the BroadbandReports.com forum says:

    There seems to be something real fishy about the new Google Toolbar with the VD theme. Mine did not change so I went and downloaded the new one because I thought it was cute.

    Problems began after I installed it. My internet connection was just fine UNTIL I rebooted. I could not get on the internet after that. I kept getting a message that it couldn't find the server. If I clicked on my OE I could connect. If I went to my network connections and clicked on my normal connection I could connect.

    I did a System Restore, and it took me back to the old Google version 2.0.106. I was able to connect with no problem the way I normally do by clicking on Internet Explorer. I'm sticking with my old version.
    Continuing on...

    * Most people at WebmasterWorld poo-pooed the security and privacy risk, but at least a couple of people get it.
    * At least one person here gets it

    Those are the three most notable finds when you Google for discussions on this anyway. I ran across any dozens of chick blogs with entries along the lines of "Google hearts are soooo CUTE!" I'm soooo glad they think so, while standing my ground against anyone who thinks it's just fine for Google to use their software to feed content to everyone's computer without permission or warning.

    The hearts are so out of place, however, that it throws off the rest of the toolbars, which are heart-less or otherwise undecorated.

    I don't see what's wrong with Google putting little things like that in their toolbar for different holidays; it makes it fun. I tend to agree with those who say it's cute - but even for everyone else, can't you live with the little image for a few days? It's not that big of a deal.
