Internet behemoth Yahoo! released a beta of an updated and rebranded Yahoo! Toolbar. The toolbar was most recently called Yahoo! Companion Toolbar, and before that, just Yahoo! Companion. The new software adds powerful and authoritative spyware and adware removal technology called Anti-Spy. It’s provided by industry-leading PestPatrol, Inc., and is believed to be the best, most-effective technology. This in addition to the Pop-Up Blocker it already has, powerful search tools, personal bookmarks, and other synergies with your Yahoo! account.
I have not yet downloaded it, but I may break with tradition, and try it out. If it works exceptionally well, I’ll probably replace the Google Toolbar with it (at least until Google comes out with its own spyware/adware removal technology or licenses existing technology from a proven company).
