Google Related Suggests Useful Pages As You Browse

Google Related is a new Chrome extension and Google Toolbar feature that finds related maps, videos and other pages related to the site you're viewing, so you don't need to go searching for it yourself.

Google Related is a small bar at the bottom of your screen that pops up when you hover over it with your mouse. If you're viewing a restaurant's home page, for example, it'll provide a map to the restaurant's location, reviews and other related websites. We can see this being both useful and kind of annoying, depending on what you're viewing at the time (which is why it's nice that it stays hidden). You can also hide it for specific pages through its options menu, which is nice. Check out the video above to learn more.

    there was no way to avoid google related ...and i have been trying to cancel it from the moment it was installed and you people certainly don't make that easy
    you easily install ..how about uninstalling now thank you

      Erm... I'm pretty sure it *was* possible to avoid it, since I've never even heard of it before, and I use Google products constantly.

    I HATE Google Related. When I went to gmail a window opened for selecting Google Related and there was no way to close the window and proceed with what I wanted to do until I clicked 'OK' to accept Google related. I resent the annoyance of having this 'improvement' from Google and am trying to figure out how to get rid of this.
