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.
My solution is to use the FULL Screen View on the IE browser,
(press Alt to get the IE [File, Edit, View..etc.] toolbar and
select View/Full Screen.)
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.
