VMware Toolbar Announcement

The Knowledgebase Team at VMware is happy to announce the immediate availability of a brand new browser toolbar:


VMware Support Toolbar

  • Instant access to patches, documentation, and more.
  • Built-in RSS and Twitter updates direct from Tech Support.
  • Live peer to peer chat lets you ask for help from other VMware experts and staff.
  • Custom search capabilities.
  • Works on IE, Firefox, Safari, and as of Feb 2011 Chrome.
  • No spyware; secure, safe, and private.

Another cool new capability the toolbar gives us is the ability to send a desktop alert to all customers with the toolbar installed. Under strict circumstances, we'd be able to popup a small window on your screen with important information. Of course, we'd never use this to spam our customers, its use would be restricted to critical messages.

Give the toolbar a try – we think you'll like it. And spread the word!

  1. Nice, but I’d be much more inclined to use this if it was a system tray based application rather than a browser toolbar.

  2. used with safari, the toolbar has desactived my 1password plugin and strange, now i fire up safari, i see 2 safari icons in my task list (cmd+tab)

  3. Surprised by this one, just a bit boring for vmware. Would have expected it to plug in to VC and give updated stats or health but as said by VMTN it would be better as a system tray icon.

  4. Great work. It doesn’t display correctly with a dark-themed firefox persona/theme, but I still love it; it makes my job just a bit easier.
