Zynga FarmVille toolbar review, worth installing or not?

If you are a FavmVille addict and checks your farm again and again for harvesting fully grown crops. Now you don’t need to do so cuz you can track your farm using the official toolbar of FarmVille by Zynga, the company who created FarmVille, Cafe World FishVille and Mafia Wars.

Now you can track your bonus points, get the latest updates from FarmVille’s official blog and check the time when your crops will be ready to harvest with a single toolbar. Well not only this, the FarmVille toolbar has an inbuilt search bar powered by Yahoo. You can also choose game between FarmVille and Mafia Wars (another popular game by Zynga).

How to Install?

  1. To install this toolbar use this link.(http://toolbar.zynga.com/install/farmville/).
  2. Connect your facebook profile with it.
  3. Click on install.
  4. Finally click on allow (on the top right of your window) and download the toolbar.
  5. Restart your browser.

But few things you have to consider before installing this toolbar.(Advantages and Disadvantages)

  1. This toolbar is compatible with Firefox 2+ versions only.
  2. This toolbar is very heavy (approx. 700 KB) as compared to other toolbars we use in Firefox. So obviously this will make your browser little slow.
  3. This toolbar has a link of Facebook inbox which is good.
  4. This toolbar seems to be a way of making Zynga and FarmVille more popular rather than making FarmVille more convenient for users, unnecessary links of forum and other games shows it all.
  5. You can disable some features of this toolbar by selecting ‘Toolbar Options’ after right clicking on it.

Well all I want to say about this toolbar is that this is meant for real FarmVille addicts, it’s quite useless for others. The purpose of making this toolbar is to keep people reminding about their Farm so that they will return again and again. πŸ˜‰

So, tell us what do you think about this toolbar?

I have stopped playing farmville because of its harsh marketing.

I’ll try it if Zynga ever releases it for Chrome, but I’ve no intention of switching browsers in order to be able to use it. Firefox has been way too slow and unstable as of 3.5, and I don’t care for the older versions, so I’m a Chrome user now, and happy with it.

Well have to give it to you, Browser is more important than Farmville toolbar.

chrome rocks …. firefox is toooooooooooooooooooo slow

It’s not working properly. Right now it’s showing “rewards” which when I click on it does nothing. The “bonus” does nothing and right now my harvest time is not showing up. It’s very frustrating. Now to figure out how to get rid of it.

The toolbar stopped working 2 weeks ago and it is really a disapointment!!

Aditya Kane July 20, 2010

@Julie: It works fine. I installed it and used it for a while after reading your comment. You might want to update the toolbar by visiting the site mentioned in the post.

Do you know real purposes of these toolbars ? Why do they sell it so hard ?

Data collection ! Normal users might not see this coming nor harmful, but essentially they gather your browsing habbits and all web data, though anonymously(You will never be identified). And guess what ? This data is worth millions of $. This is used in marketing. Check compete.com, alexa.com, comscore.com etc. all these peopel are in this data colleciton business via toolbars. Remeber those hard-sellign zwinky ads all over few months back.

On the Firefox browser lookup View >> Toolbars and deselect the one you want. Within Addons Manager you will also be able to uninstall the toolbar.
