    Check out the new Sidebar

    Source: Official Google Desktop Blog

    The Google Desktop Sidebar has always been great at delivering content personalized to individual users, ever since it was introduced way back in the second version of Google Desktop. But we kept thinking: what's a better way to deliver this content? In later versions of Google Desktop we let gadgets float on the desktop. But the Sidebar was starting to get a bit jealous and we couldn't restrain it any longer, so now there's Google Desktop 4.5, featuring a Sidebar with a new look.

    The new Sidebar is transparent, so it fits seamlessly with your desktop environment. Gadgets that fought for attention now look right at home, and content-heavy gadgets get new frames and icons that make it easier to tell them apart. All of this leads to a better place to find your email, news, feeds, stock prices, weather and other essential information. And this version is compatible with all of the latest software including Microsoft Vista, Office 2007 and Mozilla Firefox 2.0. So what are you waiting for? Try the new Sidebar in Google Desktop now.

    I dont use any such search utility. I rely on native indexing features of the OS. But I would like to hear from the people why they are using it. Simply state how helpful are these search utilities for you.

    yes Google Desktop search very usefull for my Father... lol.. he has lots of tons of Word / Excel documents...

    but its not that usefull in case of me as i have more HTML/PHP/EXE sutff jam packed rather than those so Windows Default search does the job for me... :)

    I personally dont prefer the docks too much either. A few widgets like weather and mail might be useful in particular but the clock and all is solely for the beautification IMO. I love a simplistic desktop with greater functionality rather going for too much cosmetics but again thats my personal opinion.
