For developers, Google Toolbar is now an additional channel to distribute gadgets, especially ones designed to interact with the websites users visit."

Fill in forms with a single click:

"Toolbar's AutoFill feature, which lets users fill out web forms with a single click using address and contact information saved with the Toolbar. This new version has better accuracy, allows users to preview the filled-in form and even maintain multiple profiles." For instance, if you are to get packages shipped to both your home and office then you can set up a different profile for each address.

Access your Toolbar from any computer:

You can now save your Toolbar settings online "and access bookmarks, custom buttons and other preferences from any Google Toolbar."

Get suggestions for broken links:

If you've mistyped a web address or if a site is down, now you won't get the usual 404 or DNS error page. Rather you "will see suggestions for top related pages. This feature is similar to the "did you mean?" function when you do a Google search."
