Google Desktop meets Linux
Posted on 28-Jun-2007 13:36. | Tags Filed under: News.



A Linux version of Google Desktop has been released, with this tool now available on Linux, Apple Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows. Tthe Google Desktop application allows users to search their desktop and the web as easily as they search the web with Google.

One of the major features of Google Desktop for Linux (beta) include a comprehensive indexing function, that will enable searching the full text of virtually all of a computer's content, including text, PDF, PS, source code, HTML files, email from Thunderbird, OpenOffice.org documents, Man and Info pages, folders, images, and music.

Google Desktop for Linux can even find previous versions of files or recover those that have been accidentally deleted.

The Quick Search Box is the fastest way to do web and desktop searches. Hitting the command key twice calls it up, instantly displaying results as users type.

The software also makes it easy for users to simultaneously search their Gmail webmail, web search history and the web at large. And because their index is stored locally on their own computer, users can even access their Gmail and web history while they're offline.
