We've been tracking Exalead, the feature filled (putting it mildly) web search engine from France since it became available last October. About a month ago, Exlead's web database passed the one billion page mark. Since October, we've also known that Exalead has plans to enter the desktop search space. We still don't know exactly when a beta release will be available but some screen captures are available via the French language web search newsletter, Netchercheur. From what we can see, Exalead Desktop Search will offer many of the same features and sport the similar UI as their robust web engine. Thanks to Christophe for the heads-up.
