Amit Agrawal does one of the most comprehensive reviews of MSN Toolbar Suite. Hey, he used my reviewer's guide. Nice!
Update: I just learned that Amit just reposted other people's reports. I didn't catch that. I gotta stop blogging at 1 a.m. after only getting two hours of sleep the previous night. Sorry to Jan who actually wrote that review.
