The toolbar is based on Midspark Toolbar Platform and powered by Ask Search.

    Evan, Sorry for the delayed reply, found your commnet in the spam bucket. I think the biggest that I couldn't get to work was the PermaTabs extension. I use so many web based apps that it's very helpful to just lock the first tab as G-Mail, second as my dev dashboard, third as Backpack, etc. It was also frustrating that the extension transmogrifier wasn't working and I think event threw an ugly error, but it's been a while since I looked at it. Thanks, Mike
