Google Launches Desktop Search

It was widely expected that Google would launch it's own browser called Gbrowser anytime this year based on the Mozilla browser.Google has announced the launch of the Google Desktop Search. With this launch, Google is focusing on placing a desktop application on your computer that *makes your browser seem smarter.* The browser (IE only for now) becomes the interface front end to a major Google incursion into the PC hard drive, a space that heretofore has been owned by Microsoft. Om Malik reviews the product by installing and comparing with Blinkx and comes to the conclusion that . Blinkx is a Mercedes compared to Google which is like a yugo. Om Malik observes that Google needs to learn one thing: what works as a web interface doesn't necessarily work as a desktop UI. Secondly, the product should not have been rushed. Blinkx found music files, photos, and all sorts of things on this laptop. Google found limited stuff, mostly Microsoft mail and documents.There are a few interesting reviews available - Kottke, Danny Sullivan, Erik Speckman.
