Google Desktop Search Plus

GDSPlus allows you to specify what extensions the new Desktop Search tool from Google will index. This includes the ability to add new extensions not yet supported by Google, such as:
  • .xml
  • .log (mIRC and Trillian)
  • .cs, .vb (Visual Studio .NET source code files)
  • .frm, .bas, .cls (Visual Basic 6 source code files)
  • any other extension that can be indexed as text (not PDFs etc.)
You can also remove support for any of the extensions that Google included and you do not want indexed.

ed. Looks to be a very useful tool, something that Google might do well to replicate. In other GDS news, Mozilla team member Asa hinted strongly that support for searching of Firefox internet history would be added in the next version.
