LXer: Desktop search comparison: Beagle vs. Tracker

Published at LXer:

Beagle and Tracker are projects that allow you to index your files so you can quickly search filesystems. Both projects started out with the intention of being used with the GNOME desktop, but have recently made a push to be desktop-independent and work with KDE and other desktop environments. Over two days, we'll compare their usability and performance. Both projects are not only standalone tools, but often incorporated in other utilities. If you are interested in which applications use them, you can read the lists for Beagle and Tracker. Depending on how your distribution packages Beagle support, you might find that an extension for Firefox is available so that Beagle can index every Web page you view.

Now Linux user have non-Microsoft encumbered choice for Desktop search. Not only does Tracker not contain the Microsoft code Mono that Beagle does, but it is faster and uses less memory.
