MSN Beta Desktop Search Revealed


As most of the WWW now knows, Microsoft had announced it would release a Desktop Search tool. The beta of the Desktop search was revealed today which can be downloaded at http://beta.toolbar.msn.com/. Have played around with it and the initial feeling is that it looks/works pretty cool. Would like to play more with it to find whats the functionality and speed is like. Some interesting features that I found are

1. Able to search PDF files by installing a Plugin

2. Search as you type

3. Integrates with Outlook

4. Accessible with a configurable hot key (default is ctrl + alt + m)

Bottom line: Amazing stuff and if beta is this, cant wait for the final version.
