Google Toolbar evil?



Boy, that would bring in comments…. Googling Google highlighted some behaviour of the Google toolbar that seems a bit fishy.

This was first reported over at Google blogoscoped and appears to be a bug (after the toolbar process is closed it fails to close completely.) Google says they’re working on a fix.
