August 22, 2005

Google launched Monday a comprehensive Internet application service.
The Internet search engine is now offering Google Desktop 2, which is available for free as a download and allows users to find information and store their personal files on the same application.

The application is "a personal web assistant that learns about your habits and interests to identify and present web pages, news stories, and photos that it thinks you will be interested in," Marissa Mayer, director of product management for consumer products, said in a news release.

While the program is currently available only in English, the company said additional language support will "follow shortly." The application is downloadable from
