Bing Bar is the toolbar from Microsoft. It is like other toolbars like Google toolbar, Yahoo toolbar and Ask toolbar. Toolbars are made to make things easier for people. Toolbars include utilities to check email, get updated with weather reports and news updates and translate websites.
Normally I use Google toolbar with my Firefox and Bing Toolbar with Internet Explorer 9. I’m accustomed to using Firefox but now loving the new experience of IE9. Bing Bar looks impressive mainly because of the layout used. It uses a centralized layout while all other toolbars are left aligned. We talked about Bing getting social by integrating Facebook results within the search results and now Bing Bar also uses a social touch by including Facebook alerts on the toolbar. So if you are a Facebook addict, Bing Bar is for you. Now you can see Facebook news feeds, friend requests and other notifications right from the toolbar without having to open Facebook all the time.
