Solid Overall; A Boon to Widescreen Users
Google Desktop gives you a sidebar, an area at the edge of your screen where you can place a clock, a calendar, and more. The analog clock makes checking the time easy. The calendar is what you would expect, and it also displays upcoming events you have scheduled (using Google Calendar) in a list. You can search your computer using the search box. If you don't want to use the sidebar, you can tuck the search box at the bottom of the screen and get rid of the rest of the gadgets. The search returns results faster than Windows' Find feature does. This is useful for finding and playing an mp3, or finding a program without searching through the Start menu. Overall, the program is very useful, especially if you have a widescreen monitor, because then you can take advantage of the extra space at the edge of your monitor to view data you choose.
