New Bing Toolbar Adds Facebook Connection, Limited To IE Browsers

Google may have had an edge in the search engine toolbar application, but the launch of Bing’s new toolbar with its Facebook connection may be offering Google some serious competition, though limiting access to the Internet Explorer browser may hurt its adoption.

“Now, as you live more and more in the browser, actually pulling in all the disparate data sources that you have or want to use–your mail, or your Facebook status, and all these things across the Web–ends up actually making more sense,” Bing Director Stefan Weitz told CNET.

“Though the Facebook features and other functions including maps, mail, translation, and rewards are somewhat useful, the Bing Bar is only available to users of Internet Explorer 7 or later running Windows 7, Vista, or XP, limiting its potential for adoption,” Inside Facebook noted.

A walk-through of the toolbar can be found below.
