Google Desktop 4.5

Posted on Friday, November 17 2006 @ 00:12:32 CET by LSDsmurf

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
  • Vista compatibility
  • Full support for IE7 and Firefox 2.0
  • Support for Fast User Switching (!) - Please let us know how this feature works for you.
