Gold tools break some blocks faster than diamond tools, but they have half the durability of wooden tools, they are great for building if you make them unbreakable with an editor. Gold sword isn't anything special though.
Golden tools are the exact same things as wood tools but much weaker and with less uses.
The only way golden tools would even come in handy would be if you didn't have ANYTHING on you but a crafting bench and some sticks and you had plenty of gold.
Thus, the only tools that would even have any use with the golden tools would be the shovel and the gold pickaxe. (Plus golden pickaxes can only mine what wood can mine aka coal and stone)

It's gold, not budder.
If you say plz because it's shorter than please, I will say no because it's shorter than yes. I'm doing dragons again. Click these two if you want.
That person on Youtube, he's a moron. Gold is the second worst material to make tools from.
Actually, no. Gold tools can break certain blocks much faster than Diamond, but have less uses. I've tried breaking Iron/Gold/Diamond blocks with a gold pick and it went super slow for some reason. The only way they'd be more efficient though, is to make tons of them, or invedit yourself invincible ones.
Gold tools (pickaxe, axe, shovel) break anything a wooden variant can extremely fast.
For instance, a gold pickaxe will break stone in 0.2 secs (as opposed to 0.3 secs for diamond), but it will only "mine" blocks that a wooden pickaxe can. For example, a gold pickaxe can't mine an iron block.
Golden sword and hoe is pretty useless. Since there's no "break time" for these tools there's no speed bonus.
Conclusion: if you're using InvEdit or something to build stuff for fun, use golden tools with overdurability, since they'll make breaking things much faster. In normal play, use gold for booster rails to boost minecarts or gold blocks to boost your ego.
The trick with gold tools, that I do anyway, is to use them right until the block is about to break, and then switch to a stone/iron tool. If you do it right, you'll mine the block really fast, but another tool will degrade rather than the gold one.

Gold is weak without alloys like zinc, brass etc there isn't any plausible reason why anyone would waste their time crafting it into a tool or weapon it's kind of a worthless metal in minecraft besides using it to make golden apples...
