Place all your favourite options on a Toolbar and sort them the way you want it for easy access.

I loathe toolbars in general. But gboxapp has a pretty poor reputation online and is even referred to as malware.

I wouldn't install a toolbar either, especially Conduit.
Toolbars in my opinion slow down loading the browser, and in many cases are tracking your activities.

The worst case of toolbaritis I ever saw, they must have installed every toolbar offered. In IE only half the screen was available for internet content. The rest was occupied by toolbars. IE took forever to load. same with pages. I uninstalled all the toolbars. What a difference.
