Google Inc. has released out of beta its Firefox search toolbar, which includes features such as spell check and a word translator.

The add-in, which was released after two months in beta, also adds to the open-source Web browser capabilities that include query suggestions while someone types in the search box and an auto-filler that fills out forms for faster checkouts on retail sites.

Google also offers a search toolbar for Microsoft Corp.'s Internet Explorer, which does not have the auto-suggest capability and is less customizable than the Firefox application. The Mountain View, Calif., search engine released the Firefox toolbar this week.
