screenshot-1Google has released the Quick search application today.  Search engines are currently working on next generation online searches applications, and it’s no surprise that they’ve been looking extend their search capabilities to the desktop.  We’ve seen early forays into that space by Google with the Google desktop, and Quick Search is another attempt into that space.  It’s quite clear that they’re looking to replace Spotlight.

As you type, suggestions will appear that match your query, ranging from applications and local files on your computer, to web search and navigational suggestions, to items from your browser history and contacts – and the types of results you can get will only grow over time!

Give it a go, you might surprise yourself, and like it more than spotlight or other application launchers and system search applications.
