Re: Google Desktop is worth exploring

I'm only concerned with memory usage of this product. In my normal work, I'll have two browsers open (Safari and Firefox), one displaying an ancestry.com image, another displaying an image from Heritage Quest, plus another window with my email, and I'll also be running iTunes in the background, and may have either an InDesign document or a Word document in progress, not to mention Dashboard always running in the background.

If I add the Google desktop into the mix, with it constantly sending stuff to my cache, even with 1gig of RAM built-in, I'm wondering if this isn't going to slow me down. It sounds like a great product, but I've seen to many other applications that, once installed, are nearly impossible to remove should it not deliver what it promises.

Any other Macophones out these with comments?
