I’ve been using Google Desktop for a while now, and I do have to say that it is crap.
I am uninstalling it, and here is why:
I do a search with Google Desktop for “912″ on my own computer. 912 is the area code for basically all of Coastal Georgia.
Google Desktop returns one result from “My Chat Logs.”
Now, I navigate to “My Chat Logs” using Explorer, hit “Search,” and put “912″ in the “A word or phrase in the file” form.
Windows Explorer returns 38 files that include 912.
So long Google Desktop. You suck.
Anyone have any recommendations on a good Windows search replacement? Or am I going to have to go back to a dos prompt and a search like “dir *whatever*.txt /s”?
