Spica, I think the eventual default notion will be "index every useful filetype on my PC". The advanced settings let you specify directories not to search though, so you can pick and choose what part of things to index. A good time to try it is at the end of the day, because then the machine will be idle and it can quietly run and index. joker197cinque, if you go to [desktop.google.com...] and click on Suggestion, you can request things like Firefox or Thunderbird indexing; there's already a checkbox for "Support Mozilla Firefox" button all ready to check. I checked it. :) But we wanted to get this beta out there, and then see what people requested the most. I never would have thought about Brett's idea to change how the search results page looks, for example, but I like that idea.
