I see their new service is now available on Google's homepage. Seems pretty cool. I just read the entire detailed section of info they have on it and still have some questions. I'm not computer savvy!! Now it states it will search all viewed web pages, but what if I deleted my cookies and temporary internet files(which I do often), are those web pages still accessible, or does the Google desktop search web pages that havn't been deleted. I'm not sure, but I think someone told me that no matter what, every page visited has to be stored somewhere and therefore may be searchable?? So if this is true, if five years ago the first web page I visited was a CNN article on shark bites, then I can recapture that web page through this search?? If so, wow <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="" BORDER="0"> <p>post script- Google stock that opened at like $86.00, is now like $147.00 <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
