What gets installed by the Google Desktop installer?
Mac software is usually distributed in a way that encourages simple drag-and-drop installation. Uninstallation in such cases requires dragging the same file to the Trash. Google doesnât use such a simple method nor does it use Appleâs standard installer. Google Desktop is delivered using another new Google app, called Google Updater.
