Yahoo Adds Features To Firefox Toolbar

With the right mouse button, toolbar users will be able to access Yahoo Search, Web mail, instant messaging, and Yahoo's social networking site 360 degrees.

Yahoo Inc. on Thursday said it has added features to its toolbar for the latest version of the Firefox Web browser.

The Sunnyvale, Calif., portal said on its search blog that by using the right mouse button, toolbar users will be able to access Yahoo Search, Web mail, instant messaging or Yahoo's social networking site 360 degrees.

In addition, toolbar subscribers can use their mouse to save whatever page they're on to Yahoo's My Web personal portal or to Yahoo Bookmarks service.

Yahoo Toolbar 1.1 is available now for Mozilla Corp.'s Firefox 1.5.

On Wednesday, Yahoo unveiled new features for its My Web 2.0 personal portal, which is in beta. The homepage, for example, has been upgraded to provide immediate access to a person's three most recently saved Web pages, and the ability to search pages saved by everyone on the network.

In addition, Yahoo has added tools for inserting recently saved pages in blogs, and for placing a button on a page so others can save it directly into My Web.
