I built this for fun, like some may build a puzzle on a rainy day. I do not collect any data about the user with this toolbar. The only thing tracked is the number of times this application is downloaded per day.
I currently use this software myself. I have it running on a few of my own PC’s running Windows XP. On all of them, I use the latest versions of Firefox. I have yet to experience any negative effects that it may cause on other applications running. After saying that, I must say though, if you use it, you are doing so at your own risk.
By downloading you agree that this is free software, and that you are using it at your own risk. In no event will Best Web Image, BestWebImage.com or its suppliers be liable for any consequential, incidental, special, or indirect damages of any kind in the use of this tool bar software. Upgrades are in accordance with this EULA.

Do you have a Mozzila Developer account? I need some reviews for the Twitter Toolbar so I can get it out of the sandbox.
