The Google Toolbar is like spyware. It records all the sites and pages you visit, not just the searches.:shk:

What is this Tor of which you speak? Is it useful for say, anonymity while downloading torrents/IP masking?
ISPs might know that you're using Tor, but they won't know the reason, the destination, or the purpose of the packets being transmitted through Tor.

Logging your searches and associating it with an account isn't particularly bad (considering what else others do) it only adds another layer of tracking, i.e. they can now check your search history and email and link them together. The real problem is ISP's, no matter what you do to mask your identity be it using tor or other devices your ISP can potentially track and record every detail of your internet activity, we are just lucky that at the moment most ISP's don't go to significant lengths to track your activity.
