Desktop Gmail?

Permalink

Having installed Google Desktop Search today, I wonder how long until I can do gmail locally?

It cleverly inserts local search results in a standard google query.

It's been on my machine less that four hours and I'm finding that searching for that lost email is much natural from my broswer.

The unexpected bonus is that it indexes source code. Broad searches for a class name includes not only code on my machine, but any emails in which its been discussed. Brilliant.

How long until I can get a local gmail cache? The ability to compose gmail messages locally and sync up with the googlesphere?

Who has discovered the magic that integrates local results with a network search? I suspect that they have inserted themselves as an IE Extension and are intercepting queries to google and blending the results after the fact.

Very nice indeed.
