Consolarium Toolbars Released as Version 1.0.4
I’ve just finished editing, creating new icons and digitally signing the toolbars for Internet Explorer and Firefox. These are now correct signed so won’t present any major problems when installing. I’ve also developed web based installers for both and an executable installation for windows – again all digitally signed!
Toolbars go to Beta
