Microsoft Desktop Search
life was once simple, I use Firefox love tabs… blah blah.. and i have always been on the lookout for a good desktop search tool.
If you are anything like me you have tons of stuff stored all over you harddrive, and tend to misplace that odd picture or MP3 of Strikepoint ( my radio show, plug done ) .. well I have tried :
Google Desktop Search : deskbar.google.com I had a few issues with it, Mainly control and where to store the index files , I thought that the way the results where displayed was also poor .. it lasted a couple of weeks then i removed it..
Yahoo Desktop Search : desktop.yahoo.com Now, I had tried this before in anothor format, before Yahoo bought the company lol… then and still today this beats the Google one, the filtering is much much better, more configuration, but it did lack search history… i actually used this product for a month or so maybe longer .. which is good for ME .. lol
Microsoft Desktop Search : desktop.msn.com damn you microsoft !!! …
why .. because I love it .. yer I can hear the screams already, one thing it does do is add TABS… yes TABS to IE, in honesty the filtering isn’t as good as Yahoo’s, but it works and works well, i love the UI on this … and love the TABS..
Did I mention the TABS .. Microsoft Desktop Search adds TABS to IE ..
