I've been using Mac for more than a year and has installed Google Desktop, Picasa Web Album Uploader, but I have never seen this.

Anyone using Mac has seen this before? Thank you!

My guess is

Firest: it may have something to do with the Mac version of Google Earth plugin – it's big(47MB and took 147MB during install).

I installed it yesterday and the Google Software Update showed today.

Second: it may be related with the Gmail Chat plugin – as it asks me to install it though I have installed the plugin(don't know the version, maybe there's a new version available)

Anyone has any idea?

I think Google Software is similar to GoogleUpdate.exe on Windows.
GoogleUpdate.exe updates automatic the following Software on Windows: Gears, Talk Labs Edition, Gmail Talk Plugin, Lively and Google Chrome.
All these softwares have an online installer.

I think Google started now the same for mac
