Google Hubris?

I just uninstalled Google Desktop Search which has been running alongside Yahoo Desktop Search for the past few months. Not only did Yahoo have a better preview feature of hits, Google’s tool was, strangely enough, too integrated into the browser. I prefer to jump into "Search archives & files mode" as a separate activity from my browsing and internet search activity. Having Desktop Search running in a separate application window helped that.

The recent hullabaloo over Google Toolbar Autolinks didn’t help either.
