Bing Toolbar is an add-on for your browser that will allow you to perform searches and get information from the Web.
This toolbar includes a search box that you can use to look for an expression in the Bing search engine, and several buttons that will give you access to categorized content.
By pressing these buttons you can read news, use the Autofill feature, see the current weather for your area, watch videos, and read sports and entertainment headlines.
Bing Toolbar will also let you access your Microsoft’s services, such as your Hotmail e-mail account, your Messenger contacts, and other Windows Live Services. You can share a web page, sending its URL by e-mail or through your Windows Live Messenger. It also offers automobile, financial, lifestyle and health reviews, as well as links to popular pages and games.
You can change the color of this toolbar, enabling a feature called "Tint". The Autofill function will automatically input your name, address, and phone number in pages that require them.
Bing Toolbar works on Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. It requires that your system has Microsoft Silverlight installed.
