    Google on Thursday unveiled its first-generation desktop application for searching through personal files on the PC and through a person's Web history, a move that could shake up the landscape of Internet search and raise privacy hackles.

    The Mountain View, Calif.-based company, which will report earnings for the first time as a public company next week, has created Google Desktop Search, a thin-client application that lets people retrieve e-mail, office documents, AOL chat logs and a history of Web pages previously viewed, all via the Web browser. "It's like photographic memory for your computer--if you've seen it before, you should be able to find it," said Marissa Mayer, director of consumer Web products at Google.

    I'm downloading it right now... will add reviews after trying ;-)

    For once, google has done something which isn't innovative in any sense. This was introduced by Copernic. Their prog. will also allow you to search your Favorites and history as well. check it out here:-

    Btw, it's 100% free :D
