Google Fixes Toolbar Privacy Flaw.
In a report published on Tuesday, Harvard assistant professor and security researcher Benjamin Edelman presented findings about a privacy flaw in the Google Toolbar, Web browser add-on software that makes Google Search more easily accessible through Internet Explorer and Firefox.
In order to do things like compute the PageRank of visited Web pages or list Related Web Pages, the Google Toolbar sends the URLs of Web pages that users view to Google's servers. The Google Toolbar does so only after the user allows this data to be sent.
