It appears to me that the annoyance with the black bar Google toolbar, is because there are too many toolbars
with both the IE browser and Google.
is to use the
View on the IE browser,
to get the IE [File, Edit,
..etc.] toolbar and
so the IE toolbars go into auto-hide and reappear only when you move the cursor against the top margin.
That way you only see the Google toolbar.
