Google has updated its Desktop for Mac application. Responding to criticisms of its tool, the company says the update fixes "several critical bugs that would cause the machine to either crash or become unresponsive, especially when using Google Toolbar in Firefox".

The company stated that it has focused on making Google Desktop faster as well as fixing bugs in the program, and in Google Updater. More information is available here.

Google Desktop for Mac is a close competitor to Spotlight, Apple’s search tool added in Mac OS X version 10.4. It can be downloaded here.
