I’m always looking for all-in-one reference software for my online research. Here’s a free download for a toolbar including: to-do list, calendar, world clock, scientific calculator, dictionary, weather, translator, stopwatch, calorie counter, spellchecker and encyclopedia. I’m constantly reviewing new software, toolbars, add-ons and research tools. This free download from Translator Bar (click here) is the most comprehensive toolbar add-on that I have ever used. It downloads quickly. Translator Bar is easily customizable from Mozilla Firefox add-ons menu on the Tools tab.
Translator Bar comes preset with television, radio and shopping links. I don’t use those tools, but it was easy to reset the toolbar to my preferences. Here are all the tools available on the translator bar drop down menu:
-to-do list: from the pencil icon, pull down a ‘notepad’ style to-do list that is easy to use
-calendar: interactive date calendar with religious, bank and national holidays added. To add an event, click date and fill in details. Alerts can be set to pop up on the desk top, reminding you of appointments and events.The calendar opens in a pull-out window
-map tool provided by Google maps
-interactive world clock
-word definitions dictionary
-spell checker with handy word count tool (very helpful for online writers). Text must be inputed to spell check box
-graphic calculator including scientific calculator (from web2.0calc.com)
-unit converter (metric to standard)
-currency converter (from Google Finance)
-shoe and clothing size calculator and converter
The toolbar includes a customizable weather tool option, gas prices check, shopping price converter and translator text box, plus search bar. If you like having quick access to music or television, enable these tools. What I like about this reference toolbar is that it is compact and provides all-in-one reference tools. Translator Bar keeps my desk top uncluttered, too. This toolbar is perfect for Work-at-Home Moms (WAHM), work at home parents, students and teachers.
