In today’s complicated world it can be easy to optimize your web browsing for efficiency and productivity. This is no way to live. Focusing your time on getting more done and getting on with your day will leave you empty and your browser looking basic.
Instead choose to load up your life with toolbars. Just because the toolbar trend is fading does not mean you should follow the masses and stop filling the top half of your internet browser with toolbars. Blindly following trends is a quick path to death. Promises of more screen real estate for your websites are madness.
A search engine monopoly is easy when everyone has their default browser search set to Google.com, but what if there was a different way. In the past savvy internet surfers like yourself would have at least half a dozen browser toolbars just dedicated to web search. Some would Ask Jeeves, others would dogpile, but in the end it was a more equitable world wide web.
At the end of the day you have to ask yourself what kind of human you want to be. A thrill seeker always looking for that next fix of happiness, or a badass who has a shit ton of toolbars in their browser? Be the change you want in the world and always install the toolbar.
