Do not be too harsh with me on this one. While toolbar are usually anything but appreciated by the majority of users, it may be different this time.
The Quero Toolbar is a browser bar for Internet Explorer that adds appearance and customization options to the web browser that would not be there otherwise for the most part.
You can use it for instance to move tabs on top in Internet Explorer 11, add or remove other interface elements from the browser, or use the many security and functionality enhancing features that it makes available.
Installation of the Quero Toolbar should not be a problem at all. It supports all Windows operating systems from Windows 98 on and can be installed in all versions of Internet Explorer from 5.5 on.
In addition, 64-bit versions of Internet Explorer -- at least IE11 -- are supported as well.
You may need to confirm the loading of the browser toolbar on first start after the installation depending on your version of the web browser.
It may not look like much on first glance, as it looks like other toolbars that may have found their way into being installed on the system.
The makers of the toolbar suggest that you start by making configuration changes so that the appearance of Internet Explorer is more to your liking.
To get started, perform the following (assuming you use IE10 or IE11):
That's not the only change though that you can make. Here is a quick overview of important options that Quero makes available:
Besides all that, it makes available other features that may be of interest to you. When it comes to security, it improves it through additional features such as the highlighting of the root domain, various security warnings, or the ability to block internationalized domain names outright.
It may take some time to go through all the features and options that Quero Toolbar makes available. You will realize eventually that the browser extension adds a lot to Internet Explorer without getting in to your way too much.
Especially the options to change where everything is located in Internet Explorer may appeal to many users of the browser. Add to that the extensive set of configuration options, the improved search functionality and support, and the security enhancements, and you can only come to the conclusion that this is one of the rare cases where a toolbar is actually beneficial to the user.
If you want to customize Internet Explorer -- especially IE10 and IE11 -- then Quero Toolbar is one of your best bets to do so.
