+1 Incoming? Google’s New Toolbar Is Rolling Out
For months, we’ve been getting tips about a new toolbar that Google has been testing on google.com. In fact, we first posted about it back in November and the tips have been steadily coming in since then. But today something happened: we’ve started getting a massive wave of tips about the toolbar. And all of us are now seeing it too. Yes, it looks like Google is rolling out their new toolbar.
You might ask: so what? Well, judging from the leaked images we got of Google’s social product, +1 (at least, that’s what it was called a few months ago), it would seem the two might be directly related.
So far, the drop down that shows you name only shows the Gmail address for your account. The settings menu next to it has the usual basic settings and account settings. In other words, nothing special to see just yet.
More to come, I’m sure.
