There are many new Toolbars designed to optimize the Web 2.0 experience simply by being situated on a browser window, a toolbar can suggest actions for these at a take. Thereby, helping to shape the user’s online experience. take the Web 2.0 toolbar from Web 2.0 .com. The user can quickly bring up virtually every search site in social book marking option plus it allows the user to view new postings from every website of Web 2.0 enthusiast could want. With the feeds constantly updated on the toolbar the user expands almost zero effort and has the best of the net delivered to his doorstep every minute. Now that is a pretty nice cost benefit ratio. Another cool toolbar is brought to us by Stumble Upon. It tailors the user’s experience to his preferences by first asking for the user for some of these areas of interest and then when the user hits stumble the toolbar takes the user, the sites that received a lot of votes by other stumblers with similar interests. It leverages the social book marking value of delicious or digg but keeps things moving and reduces the effort by operating from the toolbar. On a stumbled site, the user can seamlessly navigate to other user’s comments about the site. Once the user gets to the comment’s page, suddenly, puff, the toolbars turn in to a social networking site. You can see what interest you and other stumblers share and then add them as a friend if you want. It takes a pretty influential toolbar to take someone from stumbling aimlessly through the internet to declaring friends with someone on your site. The stumble upon toolbar effectively tunnels the user through this experience simply by being a useful resource that remains handy from webpage to webpage. A toolbar with a good concept behind it is the You Know tool bar. The ticker you see displayed here is different for every site you visit because it shows the most popular sites that people either left this site to visit or left to visit this site. This way, people have a constantly updated and socially validated list of suggestions for sites that they might also find interesting. This means that the toolbar is tailoring itself to the immediate interest of the user not trying to predict what the user would like to see based on a survey given to the user in the past as with the practice with Stumble Upon. Because the users are allowed to vote in Stumble Upon, the toolbar would generally give you more popular hits. But those who prefer to surf rather than Stumble, this toolbar is definitely the way to go. If the user needs a little push, there is always the surprise me button which like stumble upon takes these to a random or popular website to get them started. The creator of the You Know toolbar should also be commended for creating a toolbar that persistently gets the user’s attention by using the movement of the ticker to its advantage. One might think this could get annoying, the fact that the toolbar is working cooperatively and specifically towards the user’s advantage will make it more likely that the user will adopt this minor intrusion with appreciation. At the end of the day, everyone of these toolbars has the ability the user’s super saturated with all the information and fun he or she can handle. There is no way to worry too much about which one to pick because they will all get the job done. And if you cannot make up your mind, use all three in conjunction and never grow bored or ill informed again.
