Hi everybody!

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?

Cheers!
