Google Desktop is desktop search software made by Google. In 2004, Google launched Google Desktop. It is compatible for Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows. The program allows text searches of a user’s e-mails, computer files, music, photos, chats, Web pages viewed, and other “Google Gadgets”. Users can access all this function through their desktop.
Google Desktop already got more than 10 million users around the world. Google is really very humbled by the great support and intellectual use of Google Desktop. The usage and the users feedback was tremendous, says Google.
Recently, on September 02, 2011, new update on Google Desktop comes out through their official Google Desktop Blog.
“Desktop has been used by tens of millions of people and we’ve been humbled by its usage and great user feedback. Thanks again to all of our users. It’s been a fun journey.”
