More applications in Google pack
Google has reportedly added some new applications to its Google Pack, including new security options and a fresh way to display photos.
The Google Pack is a collection of free essential software including Google Earth, Picasa, and Google Desktop. Using this, users can save on the trouble of finding, installing, and updating software.
The new security options in the Pack include Symantec Norton Security Scan and PC Tools Spyware Doctor Starter Edition.
Earlier this week, Symantec had announced an upgraded version of its free Google Pack antivirus offering called Norton Security Scan.
Besides, the new Google Pack also features a new way of photo display with Google Photos Screensaver. The photo screensaver turns the screen into a digital picture frame and displays the latest photos and shows images from the computer, Picasa Web Albums, or photo feeds from other photo-sharing sites.
With this, now the Google Pack includes a whole set of applications such as Google Earth, Google Desktop, Picasa, Google Toolbar, Google Photos Screensaver, Google Talk and Google Video Player. It also includes the partner software Mozilla Firefox, Adobe Reader, Norton Security Scan, RealPlayer, GalleryPlayer HD Images, Skype and now Spyware Doctor.
Google said that the Pack downloads and installs new as well as the other existing applications quickly and easily. Moreover, the Google Updater helps keep the applications updated.
Google Pack Beta can be downloaded in 12 languages at http://pack.google.com. It is compatible with Window XP and Vista, and also supports Internet Explorer 6.0 and Firefox 1.0 and higher.
