Google Desktop

Wow!! what a relief from the MS based search options. Google is beta testing a new desktop search application, integrated with your browser. The speed at which it indexes your HDD is brilliant. I am able to search my entire HDD within 15 min. of installing the application. What's more, you can have all the google shortcuts works for your HDD too. Must have application to go with. Download Google Desktop here

If you still think about better alternatives for searching your HDD, there is a free version tool called Blinkx. I saw that in BBC's Click Online program and downloaded it for using. But, Google's Desktop beats that. Although, G-Desktop is good, it lacks the features & functionalities of Blinkx.

Now as you thrown out your IE from your computer, throw off your Windows Search too now.... I am feeling more comfortable using someone other than Microsoft i need to work with always!! It feel so good to be with google all the time.
