Google updates desktop for Linux

Beta-tastic launch

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Google has updated its desktop for fanboys* Linux with the beta launch of version 1.1.

Now you can search and launch applications, and search within Microsoft Office documents. The team at Google has also upgraded the image search so better quality thumbnails are returned and more image formats are supported.

Software engineer Jim Zhaung adds that the hotkey that launches the quick search box is now customisable. Tasty.

The firm says the changes have been made in response to user feedback. No doubt there will be plenty more of that once tech-heads have got their mitts on the new version. Point your browser here to download it. ®

*Shhh. You know we love you really.
