Instant Search at Your Fingertips
Google Desktop Extreme brings the power of Google search to your desktop - with advanced features not available in the standard version. GDX begins searching as soon as you start to type, returning results as fast as possible - even faster than you can type. GDX also has auto-complete, so your searches are remembered for quick access.
Easily Find What You Need
GD Extreme allows you to sort your results by name, date, file type, or relevance, allowing you to quickly sift through your results to find the right item every time. In fact, we've even put some "group" buttons on the results page to help you see only what you need: Office files, Media files, Pictures, or others. GDX also shows you thumbnails when browsing images. GDX also has the option to launch email-related files in your default email program directly. Outlook items such as Calendars, Notes, Tasks, and Contacts can be opened straight into Outlook, without having to view the cached version.
Convenient File Manipulation
The search results in GDX provide a convenient right-click menu for easy launching of a result, it's cached version, or the folder it resides in. For file type results, you can also copy to the clipboard for quick compiling of files to one place.
You can set GD Extreme to sit in the background and wait for your input, so results are instantaneous. GDX places an icon in your system tray, which will provide a search box when clicked.
GD Extreme provides a simple skinning engine, so you can customize the buttons and colors, and a "default" skin installs with GDX.
