Islamic Toolbar

UPDATE: The toolbar is no longer being supported and updated. It has been discontinued.

This is really cool and something new to the online Muslim ummah: an Islamic toolbar. It began just for the University of Waterloo MSA, but the brother who developed it contacted me and said he is expanding it for all Muslims around the world. It features:

  • RSS feed of News, Blogs, etc. all related to Islam and Muslims
  • A radio that features Nasheeds (MR Radio is featured on it)
  • Google-powered search bar
  • 10 Islamic TV channels

You can find out more info and download it here. Here is a screen shot: islamic-toolbar.JPG
