Starware Toolbar?
« on: August 09, 2006, 04:22:13 PM »
I normally don't use these things but my wife wants to install this toolbar thingie on her 'puter and has asked me to vet it. I've no idea as to issues, security holes, or undisclosed unpleasantries that it might entail.

Anyone here heard of this or use it?

I fear the internet.
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."" Isaac Asimov
