Google has released Desktop Search
tool. Just tried it for few minutes and I am impressed with the results. I was having difficulty locating a document and with Google Desktop Search it was so damn easy to find it and to find every other document related to it. As usual already security and spyware concerns
have popped up in the web. Microsoft is also planning to capture desktop search space and have already acquired Lookout
. However I don’t see it’s happening at least for a year, but when it happens I am sure the search facility will be integrated into their OS. In the search business who knows more about user behavior has control and Google has competitive advantage in that space. However, first hurdle for Google is going to be to fight the security concerns and establish its credibility for its Desktop Search Tool.
