There’s a lot of buzz this week about search engine toolbars, most of it coming from Search Engine Watch. Monday’s SearchDay reported on the Dogpile Toolbar, which allows you to easily access the Dogpile metasearch tool from your browser window. On Tuesday, Chris reported on the new HotBot Quick Search Deskbar which, among other things, allows you to translate words, perform currency conversions, and get a weather forecast from the toolbar. Today’s SearchDay wraps up with a gaggle of search engine toolbars, including AskJeevesCNetGGSearch, and others.

Not to be outdone, Google has released Version 2.0 of its popular toolbar, which is still in beta. New features include a pop-up blocker (which has already blocked 22 ads for me this morning), an AutoFill feature, and a Blogger tool.
