I'm a toolbar tool 
I'd like to be a Mozilla Firefox person, really I would—I've downloaded and installed it and everything—but darnit, I'm a toolbar junkie, and I can only get all my toolbars to work in Internet (H)explorer.

I've gotta have my Merriam-Webster toolbar so I can look up words on the fly when I'm copyediting (or doing the Times crossword on my computer);

I need my Yahoo toolbar because that's where all my bookmarks live (plus it's the fastest way to get to my primary e-mail);

and I don't need my Google toolbar, I guess, but I like all the search tools and the extremely aggressive pop-up blocker,

and I especially like the option where you can toggle highlighting of search terms on the "found" page.

Oh, I know Mozilla is wonderful. It handles Unicode brilliantly, and you wouldn't believe how good right-aligned Hebrew looks in it. But...but...my toolbars! I want my toolbars!
