Google Desktop Search

Google Desktop Search Download

Tiny (400k) download. Indexes Outlook (Express), AIM, IE, Word, Excel, Powerpoint and text files. Runs on Windows 2000 and XP only.

More details on O'Reilly, plus John Battelle's Searchblog and Search Engine Watch

Very weird doing a google search and seeing the resuilts of your desktop search. (not bad, just weird). Missing: mozila mail; Lotus notes data; images; mp3 ad other audio; Open Office files; pdf's!!!. Is it just chance that it focus's on Microsoft formats?

It's a very Google world !! I've got Gmail and notifier, Adsense, Google Blog (Blooger) and now Google Desktop search.
