So far those analysts have been disappointed, but on Thursday, Google announced it would no longer include support for new versions of Firefox with its Google Toolbar. Was it the first volley fired in a new browser war?

Who still uses those ancient crap know as browser toolbars?
What does the toolbar do that is not already part of the browser?

Google has something called the Chrome Web Store. It lets you run apps in Google Chrome (Google's browser). Maybe that's why there's no Google Toolbar support for Firefox anymore. But that's just a guess.
