The Google Desktop Sidebar has always been great at delivering content
personalized to individual users, ever since it was introduced way back in the
second version of Google Desktop. But we kept thinking: what's a better way to
deliver this content? In later versions of Google Desktop we let gadgets float
on the desktop. But the Sidebar was starting to get a bit jealous and we
couldn't restrain it any longer, so now there's Google Desktop 4.5, featuring a
Sidebar with a new look.
The new Sidebar is transparent, so it fits seamlessly with your desktop
environment. Gadgets that fought for attention now look right at home, and
content-heavy gadgets get new frames and icons that make it easier to tell them
apart. All of this leads to a better place to find your email, news, feeds,
stock prices, weather and other essential information. And this version is
compatible with all of the latest software including Microsoft Vista, Office
2007 and Mozilla Firefox 2.0.
This version includes the following improvements:
New Sidebar UI with transparency and gadget icons
Full support for IE7 and Firefox 2.0
Support for Fast User Switching (!) - Please let us know how this feature
works for you.
