your personal information on your own computer. As easily as searching Google, you can instantly search your files, local email, the web pages you have seen, and more," said Larry Page, Google's co-founder and president of products." It's free, installs quickly, and keeps completely up to date. Google Desktop Search represents a quantum leap in access to your own information."

Google Desktop Search is a lightweight, free, downloadable application that brings Google search to information on your computer.

Google Desktop Search is available at http://desktop.google.com. It is currently available for Windows XP and Windows 2000 Service Pack 3 and above. It requires a minimum of 128MB of RAM, and a 400MHz (or faster) Pentium processor is recommended. Google Desktop Search is available in English today and there are plans to make it available in other languages.

This new tool is not without skeptics though. According to The Motley Fool.com, this new tool can open up a host of issues, but states "Once you get past the privacy concerns and the creepiness of its search capabilities, you realize just how powerful -- and fast -- this thing really is."
