What does 100sOfRecipes Toolbar do?

At first glance, 100sOfRecipes Toolbar appears to be every chef’s best browsing companion, but the reality is very different. The toolbar features five bookmarks. The first one is called Recipe Search. There is nothing special about this function as it uses the search provider to find the recipes and just filters out search results not related to food. The second bookmark is a kind of a widget that displays random food recipes, but also has a search function with a limited database. The third one is just a bookmark to a website called Mealplanning.food.com. Some versions vary in their contents but in our case the fourth bookmark was an Internet radio app that is commonly found in 100sOfRecipes Toolbar clones.
