YouTube On Your Desktop

Google Desktop Team

YouTube gives you the chance to stay on top of news and current events, practice some sweet dance moves, explore new hobbies and interests, and a whole lot more. So, today the Google Desktop team is pleased to release a YouTube gadget for Google Desktop. Once installed, you'll be able to bring up the gadget in an instant and search for videos (hint: pressing the shift key twice brings up all your hidden Desktop gadgets). The videos will play directly inside the gadget, which also shows a feed of the day's most popular clips.

The gadget works on Linux and Windows. We hope you enjoy, and please let us know what you think.
