search tool

Google Desktop 2 (Beta) - this is pretty neat and has a nice desktop bar with recently used items, news, pictures and stuff.

The only thing was, I had to download the university's proxy config, save a local version, and edit it so that it ignores localhost and 127.0.0.1 (which Google Desktop uses for its search).

There's an article with extensions and workarounds on O'Reilly as well.

In the end I uninstalled this, due to concerns about privacy.
