Is the new Google Toolbar Freezing your Browser?
Story Text:

After the last involuntary autoupdate that upgraded my toolbar, I noticed that my browser freezes everytime I try and view a cached copy of a page. It will even freeze when I go directly to google and type in the cache: command. Has anyone else noticed this? There is a discussion here about it.
