Gaia Toolbar is a small application available for download and use for either Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. It went through a limited beta test on December 4 2007, where it was only made available to purchasers of Monthly Collectibles or Gaia Cash in the 31 days prior to the announcement. It was made available to all the Gaian public later in the same month on December 10.
