Mother of all Search Engines, Google, delivers a baby for your desktop, Google Desktop. Although in beta version, this thing rocks.
- Find your email, files, web history and chats instantly
- View web pages you've seen, even when you're not online
- Search as easily as you do on Google
It will directly compete with Lookout (bought by Microsoft) for Outlook Searches. While I am very satisfied with Lookout, Google as always takes your attention. I searched for some names using Lookout and Google Desktop and no suprises there, both returned very similar results. You can even Reply, Reply to All, Forward, Compose or View the mail in Outlook, all from the google Search results page. This is very cool. For people who mind installing .Net Framework which is a requirement for Lookout to work, Google will be the de-facto search engine for both WWW and Desktop.
