Starting today, visitors to the Flash Player Download Center on Adobe.com may be presented with the option to install the free Google Toolbar as part of the download process. The offer is only made to visitors using Internet Explorer on Windows, who don’t already have the Google Toolbar installed. This is part of the Google Toolbar agreement announced last June, and the toolbar is also being offered on the Adobe Reader Download Center and as part of the Shockwave Player installation process. Yes, this does mean that the Yahoo! Toolbar is no longer being offered on the Download Center. For more information about the toolbar offer, please visit the FAQ.
This offer is only made on Adobe.com for Flash Player and developers can continue to design in-context installation experiences for their site that do not require sending users to Adobe.com. Adobe also offers free distribution licenses for intranet and fixed media distribution of Flash Player.
