Google has launched Toolbar 6 for Internet Explorer in beta saying they've taken in "back to basics" with the focus back to their core areas of search and navigation.

Toolbar 6 gets a "Quick Search Box" feature that provides search functionality outside of the browser.

If users click on the Google logo in the taskbar to trigger it, as users type, it will provide search and website suggestions, relevant bookmarks, and allow users to launch applications directly from the search box.

Google says as you use the QSB, "it'll customise itself to your usage pattern", so over time users will need to type fewer characters.

There's also a new tab page for Internet Explorer users that lets users access their most viewed sites, recently closed tabs and bookmarked pages.

The new toolbar is available now in 40 languages.
