Google Releases “Google Desktop” for the Mac

Table of Contents

In a move that I find frankly surprising, Google has released “Google Desktop” for Mac. “We designed Google Desktop for Mac to be a companion for Spotlight,” said Rose Yao, Google Desktop for Mac Product Manager. “Google Desktop searches users’ Web history and you can set it up to search Gmail too.”

The software is another example of Google’s continued support for the Mac platform, although I’m not 100% sure I see a need for this particular product. Don’t get me wrong, I swear by Google Desktop on the one Windows machine I am forced to use from time to time, but I can’t get motivated to give this a download on my Macbook Pro just yet.

If you download it, let us know what you think about it in the comments section below.

  1. Spotlight is fast. I search for stuff on Windows boxes, even Vista. They can not compare. Vista will only search areas you have indexed somewhat at a fast pace, but still not as fast. I haven’t determined what in OS X makes it faster. Is it the file system? I think I am going to put a bloated NTFS USB drive on my Mac and search it. Then I’ll take another drive with HFS on it and the same files. How fast is it?
