Till Firefox 12, I managed to keep using the Google toolbar with some hack I found on the web. But with Firefox 13, I was tired and decided look for an alternative. I should have switched sooner!
Features I was pleasantly surprised to find -
- Options for site, image, news and maps search
- The search word buttons, next to highlighter (absolutely didn't expect to find it here)
Features I miss -
- Youtube search - I really need this!!
- Search suggestions - When I need suggestions I use the default Firefox search, so I guess it's ok.
- Gmail button - I just needed a link, so I found a way (albeit awkward) to drag the gmail link on the same column as Googlebar Lite.
- Translate - miss it a little
- Amazon search (custom added) - hardly miss it
- Google docs button - hardly miss it
Overall a very pleasant surprise for a long-time Google toolbar user.
Thank you Mr. Jonah!

Thank you for your reply. All I can say is that my review is 100% honest.
I tried the video search, but maybe because I set the option to google.co.in, it didn't work. It showed a 404 error page.
Thanks for the great review! FYI: if you use Googlebar Lite's "Video Search," you'll mostly get YouTube hits. Also, there's a link to GMail in the Googlebar Lite main menu (under "Google Links").
