I can't recall ever seeing "tool bar" before.  [toolbar] has
177,000,000 hits on Google, ["tool bar"] has 2,350,000.  And most of
the top hits for the latter are either actually "toolbar" (Google
cleverly corrects my (mis)spelling).

Hmm, fair enough.  It's not a term I recognized offhand, but it seems
pretty standard, you're right.
