Ask Jeeves Desktop Search comes in a 744KB installer and offer two types of crawling options. Gradual takes it own time to index up the hard drive eating minimal system resources. While, Fast option can be used to quickly get the application to crawl through the hard drive for fast results.

The application took around 10 Megs of ram while doing fast indexing which is decent compared to competition. The exciting part of Ask Jeeves Desktop Search is the simplified interface. It runs in its own window and initially offers two settings. Quick Start avoids the entire hard drives and just index Desktop, My Documents folder and email. This option is good for users who keep their data in a limited place. However, for most users, Custom setting would come handy. It covers entire hard drive.
