New Toy From Google

ShadowGoogle handles this sort of thing for OS X, but Google does it a little better under Windows with the new Google Deskbar. It sits in the task bar as a little search form.

Click for a bigger picture.

Entering a query pops up a small window with search results (not a full browser window), or movie review links from Rotten Tomatoes, dictionary/thesaurus entries, Google's image search feature, or several other choices selectable from a menu. It's customizable, too, which means I'll be replacing Rotten Tomatoes with The Movie Review Query Engine. Sort of handy. No comment on its long-term stability.
