Microsoft Live toolbar is now available in beta release

The Microsoft Live product line has gotten just a bit larger this week with the introduction of their new Live Search, and now with a matching toolbar, the Windows Live Toolbar beta.
In the development of this toolbar Microsoft used a new technology acquired recently along acquired with Onfolio. From MSN’s search blog:

Onfolio grabs scraps of web pages to be shared or viewed later, which is my favorite part. Also, it allows you to collect and read feed collections via a great reader that is integrated into IE so you can read all your feeds in one place. This is a great tool to help organize information that you find on the web.

The toolbar also integrates into their line of “Live” products such as Windows Live Search, Windows Live Local, Windows Live Favorites and It is currently offered only at IE version, and one may only wonder if we’re about to see it adapted to Firefox as well.

  • Can’t seem to download it, only thing I found was a registration page to become a windows messenger beta tester. Do you have a direct link?

    It’s still there, look on the top-right, blue box wording “Get the Windows Live Toolbar beta“…

  • I tried live I didnt like it at all.

  • I know it’s still in Beta but they’re going to have to make it STOP crashing IE every time I try to use it…I’ll wait until they finish it to download it again. Had to uninstall to use IE properly. I’ll stick with Yahoo toolbar.

    As an Onfolio user, I wanted to try the Toolbar version. Unfortunately, I’m on Win 2000, and the Toolbar requires XP or Server 2003….
