I decided to test Google Desktop Search yesterday, 10-14-04. It's
supposed to seach almost any kind of information "inside my hard-drive".
In the beginning I put my nick to play with, Dogo. The research came
with a bit more than I expected 'cause the engine went to some webmail
based accounts: Yahoo and MSN. I could click in the results and opened
my Yahoo Mail inbox page without a password. Maybe some password lost in
my HD? Maybe some page cached? I really don't know yet but didn't like
to see my mail exposed this way.
Well, I just used for maybe 20 minutes until the index was being
prepared. I uninstalled the tool.
Did someone try it? Any opinion?
