Google Desktop Search 2.0

Last night Google announced a new version of its Google Desktop Search at http://desktop.google.com/. Of course Gary Price blogged the ultimate write up on this GDS 2.0. In short, a new feature called "Google Sidebar" has several tabs within it; E-Mail, News, Web Clips, Scratch Pad, Photos, Quick View, What's Hot, Stocks, Weather, and of course, Search. And guess what? Google is opening up an API for developers to program tools into the sidebar (Danny hints to Yahoo!'s acquisition of Konfabulator). The BBC has an interesting spin on the news; Google tool watches as you work.

Forum coverage currently at Search Engine Watch Forums and WebmasterWorld & DigitalPoint Forums & Cre8asite Forums.
