Just curious- how many use this program?

I do ;-)
Why do you want to know?

PS: Long time ago that new features were added to it by Google. And it makes my computer really slow, I hope Google works on that...

I have been a loyal Google Desktop user .. but I don't really like the gadget's look and feel .. they should learn from Yahoo Widgets. The reason why I still use Google Desktop is because it really has efficient and accurate search. :)

I use it as a launcher for both web apps and real apps.

Results might be more interesting if broken down by desktop search and sidebar.

I use Google desktop search frequently (e.g. I find the desktop web history better than the online one) but rarely the sidebar/desktop-gadgets (i prefer the konfabultor/yahoo gadgets for desktop).
