Were you looking for … the Yahoo! Toolbar for Firefox?

Here on the Yahoo! Toolbar team, we’ve been playing with Yahoo! Live Search which you may have seen providing the search suggestions on AlltheWeb or in Firefox 2.0. We liked it so much, we put it into the search box in the latest version of Yahoo! Toolbar for Firefox for the US, Germany, UK and Korea.

Now whenever you type in the Toolbar search box you will see the most popular searches that are relevant to what you’ve typed. Personally, I particularly like the fact that Live Search also suggests terms that don’t start with what you’ve typed. For example, suggestions for “fire” also include “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.”

While we were in the neighborhood, we made a few more improvements to the search box. In addition to making suggestions, it now shows matching items from your previous searches, and expands as you type so you can see what you’ve typed when you do one of those extra long queries.

Last but not least, now that Firefox 2.0 is imminent, we’ve enabled support in our most recent Toolbars. The Mozilla team has made a lot of improvements in the recent beta 2 release, so to all you Firefox 2.0 users out there, please make sure you upgrade to the latest version so you’ll have the best experience.

Click here to download Yahoo! Toolbar 1.3 for Firefox, and please let us know what you think.
