We need a Toolbar for IE and FireFox for a social network that is looking to expand their feature set.
We would want a tool bar which is branded with our domain.
the ability for a user to log in so they can see their messages and notifications directly from the tool bar.
Also a way for us to dump a text advertisement in the tool bar as well. These ads would be ideally context driven via some site like google ads but i'm not sure the limitations of how a toolbar can interact within the webpage.
We would also want to provide a list of quick links (ideally pulled from a particular web URL at a regular interval and store on the pc until next polling time.
We would want a search feature that would connect to a popular search engine. This is likely to be google.
We would need a logout option so that if somene closes the browser or hits log out, it will no longer link to their account and will no longer contact the webpage to poll for messages or notifications.
If someone is logged out, then the button should say login instead allowing the user to login via the tool bar.
This is a basic overview so feel free to ask for specific clarifications etc..
