PC Magazine feature on desktop search tools

I recently finished a column for the CASLIS Toronto newsletter on search toolbars, those free plug-ins that allow you to launch queries in your favourite search engine directly from your browser window (sorry, the newsletter is in the members-only section of the website of the Canadian Association of Special Libraries and Information Services - but if you join, you get the newsletter, the secret decoder ring, as well as the lyrics to many great librarian drinking songs and to a few more or less silly football chants).

I was thinking of following up with something about desktop search tools, another one of those "next big things" the search engine companies are introducing. Desktop search tools are free applications that can index your e-mail messages, documents, spreadsheets, visited web pages and make them searchable.

PC Magazine beat me to it!
