Should be interesting. The thing claims to not support Opera, but all works ok so far. It's just indexing now, apparently.

I recently downloaded the Copernic Desktop Search from
and have been very pleasantly surprised by some of the things it found on my computer. It searches any of the Web, Emails, Files, Music, Pictures, Videos, Contacts, and Favorites. It arranges the results in reverse time order, i.e. Today, This Week, etc. and gives last date and size. It's web search is using AllTheWeb. It's always indexing in the background when the computer is 'idle' and produces results very rapidly.
The Google Desktop search seems more limited so I don't aim to tie up any more of my computer on such matters for the moment. However perhaps others' comments may get me intrigued.

More than half of the entries in the cache are pop-ups thrown up by IE for dating services and the like, given that the Microsoft Hotbar is also installed for our Outlook Email.

But, my XP laptop might like it and everyone else's computers here. I'm the only one still cranking on an old OS...
