Shockwave Toolbar

Shockwave Toolbar 6.8

Shockwave Toolbar is a great and comprehensive toolbar (See all)
The Shockwave

Shockwave Toolbar is a web browser toolbar that will make your Internet navigation easier. What makes this toolbar different from other toolbars is that it provides instant access to five content categories (pictures, videos, guestbooks, games and illusions) on "The Shockwave", a web site dedicated to publishing "shocking" information. There is nothing special about this toolbar, except for its links to the above mentioned site but the site itself is quite interesting. There you will find news, photos, videos that will really surprise you. The toolbar will help you receive the site's most important news and announcements instantly. Besides this functionality, this toolbar enables searching based on five categories: images, videos, news, dictionary definitions and software.

The bar can be customized using the options menu, which allows you to select which toolbar buttons to display. Other options include enabling search box history, suggesting searches from the search history and adding selected text on the web page to the search box. It supports major web browsers, such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer.

My advice: don't install too many browser toolbars, most of them do quite the same, increase the navigator loading time and occupy browsing space!
