The desktop search war continues to heat up.
Michael Worthington at Beta News reports that a desktop search app might be added to new AOL Browser by the end of this week.
AOL Desktop Search is an integrated feature that will allow users to search for a plethora of files including: documents in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, as well as PDF, HTML, WordPerfect, rich text and plain text files. In addition, users can scour through Web pages they have previously seen in Internet Explorer, AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) chat logs, locally stored newsgroups and Web logs, as well as digital media and pictures.
