Beta testers needed (MetalTabs toolbar)

I've developed the MetalTabs Internet Explorer toolbar and looking for volunteers to beta test it.

Before downloading the toolbar please note that I take no responsibility whatsoever on the damage that this toolbar may directly or indirectly cause to your computer.

The installation can be downloaded from
http://metaltabs.com/MetalTabsToolbar.msi

You will need to restart the browser after the installation.

All comment and suggestions are welcome!

PS: It might be that the toolbar won't be visible after you restarted Internet Explorer, in that case right click the toolbar area and select "MetalTabs.com Toolbar". I'm working on a fix to this bug.

I'm sure this must be a scheme to steal my music and pr0n collection via a backdoor. I will try it out tomorrow morning, since everything metaltabs is holy in a most unholy manner.
And wll it damage my computer? What will it do? Explain it to us, o great schemer of all things nomady.

It will have quick links to the homepage and the forum, and also will have the tab search forms. For the rest I'll wait for your requests

This might be difficult to implement, but how about a post checker? Something that checks posts on the forum periodicly if there are new replies in a certainly thread the user is intrested in, or it could check if someone quotes you or sends you a pm, or maybe if you get mentioned in someones post (so the drummers and bas players can't trash talk in their forums behind my back )

Looks SEXAY with the google toolbar

Since there is alot of room left could you possibly add a "Search" buttom. Say for instance I want to find some GuitarPro tabs by Slayer, then I dont find what I want so I decide to search the powertabs... It becomes a pain in the ass having to highlight the bands name and hitting enter in order to search for tabs. It would also be cool if you could have a drop down menu to select what forum you want to visit, like Guitar Talk, Gear Zone, ect.. That way people dont havin to go back to the Forum Home and select what forum they want.

Other than that.. I think I'll be keeping this.

This would be too resource intensive. You can do this manually from Search -> Advanced Search -> Key Word(s): brainsforbreakfast, Show Results as: Posts

I might develop FireFox/Mozilla toolbar if IE version will be popular.

Also, Maybe a function to search the forums would be nice... but knowing all the idiots around here 99% of them arent aware of the search function
