I've just started looking into writing toolbars for IE and FireFox for a utility I am writing that I think may be of general interest. Is there an easy way to make a toolbar that works with both browsers? Is there an easy way to make a toolbar that will work in FireFox on Win32 vs. FireFox on Linux? Or should I just plan to keep the GUI code separate and have two entirely different code paths?

Plan on two seperate projects. Firefox toolbars use javascript, xul and xpcom. IE doesn't. Firefox toolbar programming is much easier in my opinion. The javascript and xul portions will not be platform specific. And you can do a lot with just that.

A few sites I found useful in developing a Firefox toolbar are borngeek and XULPlanet.

As for IE, you would have to search around.
