Google Desktop Search Download: Google has released a beta version of the Desktop Search, which we’ve discussed before. It’s an odd bird — it actually runs a little server on port 4664 and you interact with it via a browser.
I installed it and am playing with it now. Not sure what to make of it. The results seems pretty good, but it only indexes your machine when it’s “idle” (however they define it), so it really doesn’t get much indexing done on my machine.
If you install it and play with it, post your experiences. I’ll post some comments with mine as I continue working with it.
