Google Toolbar caught tracking users when 'disabled.'
Google has updated its browser toolbar after the application was caught tracking urls even when specifically "disabled" by the user.
In a Monday blog post, Harvard professor and noted Google critic Ben Edelmen provided video evidence of the Google toolbar transmitting data back to the Mountain View Chocolate Factory after he chose to disable the application in the browser window he was currently using.
The Google toolbar offers two disable options: one is meant to disable the toolbar "permanently," and the other is meant to disable the app "only for this window."
