Google's New Desktop Tool Is Awesome!


Recommended Posts

Read about it here: TestMy.net's News

Check out this new sidebar that comes along with the new Google Desktop 2.

I normally use SmartbarXP, but this offering by google is awesome!!

Look at how it follows testMy.net's forum postings. This thing is freaking great. If you are a google fan, you'll love this.

Here is a screenshot of how I have it setup:

i downloaded, installed it, and i LOVE it!

But...theres one thing that really is irritating me...

why does it require so many services to run:

GoogleDesktopCrawl.exe  6672 K

GoogleDesktopDisplay.exe 15868 K

GoogleDesktopIndex.exe  12896 K

GoogleDesktop.exe  6264 K

Thats 41700 K, roughly 42mb of RAM usage...not that it really affects my system (1280mb RAM)....but it just seems like a lot

Hmm... Sounds like it watches everything you do, IMO.

lol i was just about ready to download it, till i saw it uses 42mb ram, i have 1024 but i'm still not ready to give up 42mb constantly, and somone said it looks like it watches all your actions and that scared me :whaa: anyway i already use gmail notifier, and the forum emails me when something happens so i know when to check it out  ;)
