Last September Google released Google Desktop version 5.8, which was lighter, faster and free of trans-fats. Today Google Desktop supports 64 bit Windows.
In addition to supporting 64 bit Windows systems, Google Desktop now supports the latest browsers as well (Google Chrome, Firefox 3, & Internet Explorer 8). Most browsers now integrate safe browsing solutions to protect users from malware and phishing. This is similar to what the Google Desktop Safebrowsing feature accomplishes.
To ensure that Google Desktop offers an efficient, optimal experience Google will be removing the Safebrowsing feature on July 31. The company encourages everyone to make sure they are upgrading to a browser that protects them from malware and phishing.
