I’ve compiled a quick comparison table (you knew I would) and added some notes below. You are more than welcome to share your own take.

Note: this comparison table is not meant to determine which one is better / worse. Instead, it aims at helping you choose the one that best fits your needs.

SEOBook Toolbar

SEObook toolbarSEOBook SEO toolbar: the recent creation by Aaron Wall is impressive (as well as most of his tools) – the only issue I noticed was that my FireFox seemed too overwhelmed with it sometimes.

SEOmoz Toolbar

SEOmoz toolbarSEOmoz toolbar is only available for SEOmoz registered members but it is really quick and contains essential information. It is mostly based on SEOmoz internal tools and metrics.

SEOquake Toolbar

SEOquake toolbarSEOquake is the first toolbar I started with. It can slow FireFox down but I like it because it is turned off with the click and can be configured in multiply ways.
