Optimize your Mac: Trash Google Desktop

June 9th, 2008 · No Comments

My MacBook is running like new – for months it’s been getting increasingly sluggish. Finally, I decided to see what could be done. I did some searches for optimizing my mac, and I came across a number of posts encouraging people to remove Google Desktop, Google’s search program that allows you to search through your own local files.

Besides recovering the 6000 megabytes of storage space Google was hogging for the application’s cache files, I’ve also noticed an appreciable improvement in both speed and battery life(?).

So there’s a tip for ya!
