New Toolbar Release: Windows Live Toolbar beta available

We have released the Windows Live Toolbar beta which adds some really cool technology from Onfolio, a company we just acquired. Onfolio grabs scraps of web pages to be shared or viewed later, which is my favorite part. Also, it allows you to collect and read feed collections via a great reader that is integrated into IE so you can read all your feeds in one place. This is a great tool to help organize information that you find on the web.

In addition, the beta integrates with the great new services such as Windows Live Search, Windows Live Local, Windows Live Favorites and with automatic RSS detection and aggregation. You can also add, arrange and display the buttons as you want. On top of all this is integration, Windows Desktop Search continues to brings you the rich ability to find items on your own computer, but now you can include them in the collections of information you have.

The entire Toolbar and Onfolio teams have worked hard to bring you this beta and we hope that you will take the time to try it out and tell us about it, good and bad!!
