GDSPlus Adds Extra Filetypes To Google Desktop Search
Web Straction points us to GDSPlus, hack of Google Desktop Search which allows GDS to read the contents of more filetypes, including XML, RTF, and WordPerfect. Sounds like a good plan. I'm tempted to install it just to properly read WordPerfect files. The program is simply a hacked version of the regular GDS program, and any future GDS updates would "break" it, but hopefully Google will add that functionality in the future. Read Dodger's post; he explains more.
