Description Jeremy Bicha 2011-03-14 13:12:41 UTC
View>Toolbar>Hyperlink bar adds an extra toolbar to LibreOffice that seems to have the following features:
1. Allows you to insert a hyperlink, which can be done more intuitively via Insert>Hyperlink
2. Allows you to use search engines from the 1990s. Seriously, the default list (can be customized via Tools>Options>Internet>Search) is AltaVista, Euroseek, Excite, Google, Hotbot, Lycos, and Yahoo.

This functionality duplicates existing and better interfaces, cluttering LibreOffice.

I like my customized hyperlink toolbar.
It's hard to say goodbye. ;-)

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.3.2RC1  – WIN7  Home Premium  (64bit) English UI [OOO330m19 (Build:201 / tag]"

I believe toolbar should be improved, not eliminated. 

As reported:
- Bug 35326 - [Easy Hack] Use contemporary search engines as default in 
  hyperlink toolbar
- Bug 35328 - Make available configuration for Hyperlink Toolbaar

Any further ideas concerning possible improvements?
