Google launched the Beta of its long anticipated Desktop Search tool for Windows today. The application acts as your own personal Google Server and indexes the contents your system by file name, or in the case of select file formats, by the contents of the file. It runs on Windows XP and Windows 2000 (with Service Pack 3).
The free download indexes the full text of email created in Outlook or Outlook Express, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, AOL Instant Messages, and caches the pages you view in Internet Explorer so you can revisit the page later "even if its live content has changed or you're offline."
The install is really simple and after you install it starts indexing. If you are working on your system then it will take a while to index. As soon as it realizes the machine is idle it starts churning away. After it indexes the data you are presented with a browser based interface much like the google we all know. Yes is it lightening fast, typing in JRun on my machine turned up 24,107 entries for files and 27,823 for web history, all that in .5 seconds. It looks through basically anything on your machine and indexes it. For free you can't beat this. it is on my short list of the best windows utilities I have ever used.
You can download it here.
