It is literally stupid. Google just recently launched an updated version of Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer users.
It comes with a stupid new bar that appears at the bottom named Google Related.
But they forgot to add a +1 button to the toolbar.
This would have made it extremely easy for Internet Explorer users to give a +1 to any web page. Currently we have to rely on the search result pages or an embedded button.
There are unofficial extensions available for different browsers. Google however has not cared to launch their own official ones.
Here are two screenshots I took while trying to install Internet Explorer 9 on my machine. Apparently, it requires me to shut down my antivirus amongst other things to install.
At least there is hope that it would not ask me for a reboot if I let it close these applications.
Microsoft is blah.
For every Windows XP there is a Windows Me.
Apple Safari has Private Browsing since ages.
Trust Microsoft to not support their own products with their own products and services.
It was fun to see an IE8 advertisement on a article about Google Chrome!
