I downloaded the toolbar and so far I really like EDGAR search functions and the ability to see the feeds for both VIN Headlines and the Queue! Thanks George.

Thanks for the feedback, Nick. Are there any other EDGAR search functions that you would like included?

So far, so good George!

Thanks for the feedback, Jason. I'm glad the toolbar is working for you.

I just wanted mention that the spell-check function works very well!

I actually like it better than my old Google Toolbar spell-check. It actually caught more spelling problems, especially with U.S. versus British ways of spelling words. It highlights uncommon spellings as problems.

The only thing I've noticed is that it doesn't work in all text boxes with IE. It's not working really with the comments boxes at Fat Pitch Financials. My guess is that it works better under Firefox. Nick, maybe you could test the spell-check out on Fat Pitch using your Firefox browser.

By the way, I also added a link to Google Spreadsheets under Tools. I thought some might find the quick spreadsheet link handy. You never know when you might need to whip up a quick DCF model to value a stock.


The spell-check functions perfectly at Fat Pitch Financials as well!

Thanks great to hear that it works in Fat Pitch Financials as well. I guess that's probably another reason for me to consider switching over to Firefox.
