Google Desktop for the Macintosh has added support for nine additional languages in its most recent update. The announcement comes in a posting on Google’s
Official Mac Blog.
Google Desktop for Mac, which remains available as a public beta test, enables Mac users to search for content on their computers the same way they use Google to search for content on the Internet. It also searches GMail accounts and Web browser history. It can create cached copies — or snapshots — of files and other items each time you view them, to provide file version control.
Languages now supported by Google Desktop for the Mac include Chinese (simplified), Chinese (traditional), Dutch, English (UK), French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish.
According to the release notes, the new release of Google Desktop for the Mac also adds a crash reporter, supports the ability to ignore spam in Apple Mail and Microsoft Entourage, supports contact groups in Address Book and Entourage, and splits its kernel extension into two parts to avoid future reboots on Tiger. The software also has seen a variety of bug fixes.
