I downloaded MSN Toolbar which includes the Desktop Search this evening. I immediately turned off the MSN toolbar since I am not interested in having two toolbars with identical features (I love the google bar and won’t give it up). So how is search?
After indexing my files, I have to say that I am impressed so far. They index folder names, source code files and supposedly e-mail. But it can’t find my Outlook for some reason. So I am holding my breath until it works with Outlook. But for searching source code…it’s great! I’ll update this as I figure it out.
UPDATE: I could get it to work with Outlook but needed to delete a registry key to do it (a bug I think). I ran this:
reg delete HKCU\Software\Clients\Mail
And I could suddently have it index Outlook. Very very nice search so far. I am close to dropping Google’s.
