Google Desktop for the Mac

Oh oh, Google is about to own me even more: Search your Mac with Google Desktop:
It seems like just yesterday that I was announcing the Google Mac blog. Since then, we've been working hard to deliver great products for Google users on Mac, including MacFUSE and Google Earth. Today, I'm really excited to let you know that Google Desktop is now available on the Mac! A lot of your most important data doesn't live on the web -- it lives on your Mac and in web services. And since Google is a search company, we're committed to helping you find all of that information.

One of the primary reasons I left Thunderbird a few years back was that Spotlight wouldn't search it. Now it looks like I can move back. I'd been thinking of moving completely to Gmail so now I have a decision to make. I'm going to start with Google Desktop and see where that leads.

Before you do that - you need to read Gruber's post on what gets installed by Google's installer.

I think I'm going to wait. Thanks for the heads-up. I think it was the Input Manager post on TidBITS that tipped the scale here for me.
