Copernic launches new Desktop Search
In competion with G, and just ahead of Y!

Info page:

AFAIK, just pipped Y! in getting their search product out before them.

Doesn't seem to do anything different from Googles...

I wonder if this desktop search is as problematic as many said google desktop search is. Not in terms of search, but in logging "too much data" that can lead to possible threat.

Anyone know?

if you ask me, google's solution is too slow. i click their icon and it takes 1-2 seconds to open browser window. too slow for 2004!

cant wait to see how will billy (microsoft) put a searchbox in tray and win...

i am testing Copernic solution now. very nice, i have to admit it.


* stays in taskbar - very easy to type keyword and press enter
* if shows results quite fast
* indexes all disks, even network disks (good job Copernic!), google: you get big (-) here!
* sorts by last modification date, very nice
* quick preview


* its fast but it could be faster
* some font size problems if you use different than default windows settings


thats for the first day...

Mamma.com bought Copernic if I am not mistaken, right?

Mamma has in hand a letter of intent to acquire Copernic. How the revelation that AOL will license Copernic affects this who knows. Looks to be a good deal for Mamma.
