Brainstorms and Raves

Notes on Web Design, Development, Standards, Typography, Music, and More





Google Toolbar’s AutoLink & The Need For Opt-Out is Danny Sullivan’s thoughtful follow-up article today on the Google toolbar AutoLink feature currently in Beta testing for Windows Internet Explorer users. He presents arguments in favor of and opposed to AutoLink, he includes links to various opinions, and he expresses his own views and concerns. This one article explains it all quite well.

Dan Gillmor has a follow-up today also, with his post, Google Toolbar, an Update. There’s more good reading here, as always with Dan Gillmor.
