As you can see, developing a browser toolbar is a good piece of craftsmanship, but although I could not describe each step in detail, writing your own toolbar should be at least faster after reading this post series and especially the linked tutorials.
If you want to test how this toolbar works on your system, you can download a stand-alone installer from my webpage.
Finally I want to encourage you to test every small code change in the Internet Explorer toolbar on all important operation systems (at least Windows XP, Vista and 7) and browser versions, because the results can be really different – far more different than when developing “normal” Windows applications.
What’s your experience with creating browser toolbars?
