Google Launches Browser Buttons.

Google, Inc., the creator of Google, an Internet search engine, has announced the release of Google Browser Buttons, a set of new browser tools that integrates Google's search capabilities into the toolbar of most Web browsers.

The new Google Browser Buttons, available at, give users one-click access to Google search and related links capabilities. The Google Search and GoogleScout buttons work with existing browsers and offer several ways to search the Web.

With the Google Search button, users simply highlight text on any Web page, and then click the Google Search button to see search results. The GoogleScout button delivers a continuous supply of suggested Web sites that are related to a search query. Both buttons can be used from any Web page and will automatically return a list of search results from Google's own search listings. Google Browser Buttons are free and can be installed into almost any browser toolbar.

"Google Browser Buttons are designed to provide a convenient, no-hassle way for users to take Google and GoogleScout with them as they travel the Web," said Larry Page, Google CEO and co-founder. "With Google's browser tools, users get one-click access to the same quality ... search experience as they would at, all without having to leave a Web page."
