The Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer offers several tools that can improve your experience using USA4SALE classifieds websites.
- AutoFill allows you to place ads in record time. Rather than typing your email and phone number for each ad, one click fills it in for you. It works on our form very well — just leave the dashes out of your phone number.
- SpellCheck draws a red line under any misspelled or unrecognized word. Fix all those typos when posting an ad by right-clicking on the underlined word. Then select the correct word from a list of possible spellings.
- AutoLink is the one we like most. You head over to the garage sales page and click the magic wand icon in the Google toolbar. All of the addresses are now highlighted as links to the interactive Google map. You can now plan your whole morning route. We think we will start to see more addresses in ads.
- WordTranslator is a great tool for our ESOL users. Google now translates English words when you point at them with the mouse. Cuidado: This WordTranslator has difficulty with the abbreviations.
The toolbar becomes a part of your internet browser in about two minutes on dial-up and uninstalls in 5 seconds, if you don’t like it.
