Google Desktop Leaves Beta, Adds Quick Search

Google has announced the graduation of Google Desktop from “beta”. With the change comes a new feature called “Quick Search“.

As Tomas Gunnarsson, Google Desktop Software Engineer, describes it…

Three months ago, I came up with an idea that makes it easier for users to find what they’re looking for: a search box in the middle of the desktop. It’s very accessible — all you have to do is press your Ctrl key twice.
