Media contact(s) 

DALLAS -- As summer sizzles down, Verizon ( is cranking up the heat with the introduction of a new Web search toolbar. The free toolbar allows users to quickly search Yellow Pages with the leading online phone directory, find individuals with people pages, as well as locate maps and get driving directions to local businesses.

The Verizon toolbar is compatible with other Web search toolbars, allowing two or more to appear on a user's browser at the same time. The new toolbar features a pop-up blocker that users can turn on and off at their convenience. Users can opt to allow pop-up ads from the sites they choose by adding them to a list.

Another added benefit is the ability of the Verizon toolbar to highlight search terms so users can find relevant results faster.

"Our new Web search toolbar is one more way to connect consumers with relevant content," said Eric Chandler, vice president of e-commerce marketing. "The Verizon toolbar loads quickly. It makes searching online for national or local products and services easier."
