Google Desktop 2



Slow morning computer news-wise. The only thing that’s really caught my eye is the release by Google of Google Desktop v. 2 In addition to it’s desktop search capabilities it adds rss in a sidebar (news, gmail info, etc.) as well as several other features (Improved outlook filtering). It is version 2 BETA so, you might expect a few bugs. There are also plugins available for the new release.



The comment in the release over at slashdot refers to a blogger saying that it’s becoming more like a browser itself replacing the need for a standalone IE or Firefox. It may be that they’re redefining what a web browser is? Instead of the concept of a traditional web browser, maybe they view their tool as a way of finding information (which has support for rss and perhaps displaying web pages at some point.) I haven’t yet tried it, but it does look like they could go that direction with it. If most of the sites you read have rss I could imagine you using a browser less with this release.
