It seems as if every search engine offers an Internet Explorer toolbar that mixes pop-up blocking and e-mail functionality with its search capabilities.
Yahoo Companion Toolbar differs a bit from other add-ons since some of its features are designed to work with your registered Yahoo account. The interface is a standard toolbar. You can add or remove buttons that launch various Yahoo services, though you have to click the Refresh Toolbar option to see the changes.
In our tests, the pop-up blocker eliminated most, but not all, ads. It didn’t hinder normal surfing, and the toolbar uninstalled without any problems. Yahoo users may appreciate the quick access to services Yahoo Companion Toolbar provides.
WHAT’S NEW IN VERSION 7.0.5
Yahoo Toolbar is a free and convenient search tool that now includes a pop-up blocker. Stop annoying pop-up ads, search the Web, access Yahoo Mail, and games. Customize your toolbar and save your bookmarks online for one-click access from any computer.
Version 7.0.5 may include unspecified updates, enhancements or bug fixes.
