Google’s new ‘Google Desktop 2.0’ download is the next version of their impressive Desktop Search technology, including several other add-ons.
New features include:
- a user configurable ‘Sidebar’ that gives you a personalizable portal: news headlines, weather, stocks, photos, quick links, and a desktop ‘scratch pad’ for keeping notes
- search for applications – useful if you know there’s an app on your machine somewhere but can’t remember where you put it – search for it and launch it
- developer add-on support for writing add-on apps for the Sidebar
