Google Desktop alternative

Posted by Mark Mitford (editor) on October 15, 2004 03:33 PM in Software .

Jason over at the unofficial google weblog suggest X1 as an alternative to Google's new desktop serarch tool.

One advantage of X1 is that it keeps all the data locally so there are less privacy concerns and you can find your files/emails without being connected to the internet.

There is a good flash demo at X1.com.
