May be useful for some, but don't expect any support Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I was elated to run across Groowe, as a potential replacement for *both* the Firefox search bar and Googlebar Lite, which I'd enjoyed using for many years. The deal killer for me was that Groowe can be accessed only via the mouse. Googlebar Lite offers essentially the same functions, only within Google, of course--and can be accessed via a keyboard shortcut.

My disappointment was only exacerbated when despite a prominent Contact link on the author's website, my inquiry regarding the above was completely ignored.

If you don't mind the mouse-only access, you may want to give Groowe a try. Otherwise consider using Googlebar Lite together with Firefox's search bar.

Bon potentiel Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Très bien. Serait vraiment excellent si l'on pouvait ajouter ses moteurs préférés, comme Ecosia, par exemple.

Googlebar replacement - Missing My Local search -Froogle outdated Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Tried this to replace old googlebar which works but has some features impaired in new versions of FF. Like googlebar lite, this lacks a key feature for me..my local search..where I put my address into search preferences and it does a map search for say, "paint stores" in my local area...far more convenient than non-localized map search. Also...froogle is gone...so updating google shopping needed. I'm glad this is offered as an option, but I'm not keeping it at this time.

Strong, Easy but no good enough Rated 4 out of 5 stars

All is good, but It cannot add the whole new search engine by user self.
For example, baidu popular in China

Amazing replacement for google bar without the translator annoyances. In fact, better than google bar.
Only lacks form auto fill.

Podría haber sido perfecta si ... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Podría haber sido muy buena si permitiera colocar botones en el lado derecho de la barra, acortando la longitud de ésta, como permitía la de Google, y es que para poner botones nuevos hay que usar otra barra, con la consiguiente pérdida de espacio a la hora de visualizar las páginas de inernet. A mí lo que realmente me interesa es poder tener a la vista el botón de Google, que queda muy bonito.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I dearly love this addon and is one of the first that I install. I have been using it for years now without a problem. I would give it 5 stars but for one thing. The ability to be able to make new searches for this via the login has now gone. Please reinstate this very useful feature so that I and others can expand it's super usefullness further by being able to add our own searches

Great Potential.... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I've been seeing the need for this for a long time. Googlebar Light is great, but I hate being tied to one search engine.

The current version has issues. I should report them on the web site, but, well, that's the first issue:

-- The official web site is a mess, with broken links, and no feedback forum. And pages that link directly from the toolbar give a 404!
-- The thing installs with a blatant ad for Amazon.com. You can turn it off, but it's still inappropriate.
-- Some buttons are managed through the usual customize wizard, others are toggled on and off by options. Confusing.
-- Search text buttons are the main reason I use a toolbar rather than FF's own search widget. The traditional implementation, where each search term becomes a page-search button, is simple and effective. Groowe, alas, uses a drop-down menu. That's more complication than I care to deal with.
-- The idea of automatically changing search engines when you enter that engine's web site makes no sense to me. The whole idea of a search toolbar is to allow you to perform a search *without* the extra step of going to a web site. Maybe it makes more sense to some users, but the feature still needs to be optional.

Despite my carping, I see the basis of a really great toolbar here. I look forward to seeing how it evolves. It wouldn't take a lot of improvement to make me switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'd like to add another 5 star rating. I love this toolbar, I have noticed something that makes me smile. It still shows a Froogle choice when it's name changed about 2 years ago. Rather than being a problem I still think of the Google Product Search as Froogle so it's actually a plus.
Why a simple catchy one word name is changed to a long three word one is beyond
me. Perhaps the developer feels the same.

Great addon, who said toolbars are dead? :P

Love it, been using it since [almost] day 1.

There is one change that I'd like though, could you please point the 'Email' link on the Google toolbar to;
https://mail.google.com/mail/#inbox

Thanks in advance

Have been using this from day one Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been using this from day one... By default I have Groowe Toolbar set to Yahoo Toolbar which allows me to have Yahoo Search at my fingertips.. There is also a Yahoo Mail Button which I use to access my Yahoo Mail with just a click... Then when I want to access my Gmail, Groowe allows me to switch to Google Toolbar with just two clicks... where there is a Gmail Button.. Very convenient!

Toolbar Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nothing can beat Google toolbar for firefox. I tried all else and retain Google. Add on Optimize Google is an advantage.

Universal toolbar Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an awesome extension! I use it every day, and the fact that they are spawning new toolbars like Wolfram|Alpha, YouTUBE, AjaxRain and AllTheWeb makes this my unique source for search in Firefox.
I have a suggestion: please include options to use the localized version of search engines, e.g. www.google.com.co, es.wikipedia.org, etc.
Thanks for this excellent extension.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I like the facilities offered by this add-on but it fails miserably in that, like so many add-ons, it assumes that there is nowhere else in the world except the US!
When I select shopping I don't want prices in U.S. dollars and outside my country. There are MANY variations of Google e.g. .co.uk, /dk, .pl, .ru, .com.au, .nl, .fr, .ie, etc. etc. and there are other Amazons etc.. So WHY this massive bias to the U.S. ? !!!
