MSN Toolbar Suite Beta

Remember the new lightning-fast file-search technology promised by Microsoft a few months back (you know, the one that quickly gained a lot of competitors a few weeks later)? Microsoft has just released a public beta of the MSN Toolbar Suite with this new technology built-in. The suite includes various toolbars (including one that sits on your taskbar) for easy access of the different MSN services.

According to Paul Thurrot's review, the file-search feature really does deliver quite well. Who knows? I might actually change my mind about promoting the Google Desktop Search. But then, both products are still in beta, and Google is yet to deliver their second batch of additional features, hopefully before the year ends.
