Google came out with a new, beta version of their toolbar for Internet Explorer two days ago (January 30, 2006). With this release comes the ability to add custom buttons to the toolbar. So we created an ESV button: enter a passage or words in the box and click the ESV button to search the ESV text.
Or highlight a word or phrase on any page you’re viewing, right-click it, and choose “ESV Bible” from the menu to search the ESV for that word or phrase. Use this feature on sites that don’t hyperlink Scripture references, for example.
How to Add the Search to Your Toolbar
Install Version 4 of the Google Toolbar (now in beta). You’ll have to restart Internet Explorer. Come back to the ESV Blog andJust add the button to your toolbar.
- If necessary, press the “Add” button when the dialog box appears.
Not Using Internet Explorer on Windows?

Update: Installing the beta toolbar with the button is actually much easier than we thought. Just click the link in step 2 above and everything will take care of itself. Thanks, Logos. (We didn’t see their post until after we’d written ours.)
