Desktop Search Engines

Last month, Google stopped supporting Google Desktop.

I have loved using it as my own Google search of my computer.  It’s a bit large in a sense and initially takes just a bit of time to index everything, but I like it much better than the Windows Search that comes with my PC.  Google Desktop looks in my eMail, documents, music, web history, and… everywhere!

Now that it’s not supported, I wonder about security, though.  Previous versions of Google Desktop had some vulnerabilities, so if a future hacker wanted to, I guess they could find content on your computer through this.  I guess I should find a new desktop search engine.

Here’s a list and links to other desktop search engines.  Do you use a desktop search engine?  Any recommendations?

Download Google Desktop from FileHippo.
