Thanks to:
  • Google Desktop is now part of the Google Pack. Google Pack is a set of utilities that Google has packaged together into a single download. When you go to download the pack you can select all or just a single application. Even if all you use the pack for is Google Desktop it is a nice way to get it because Google Pack notifies you when there are updates available.
