Affinity

http://code.google.com/p/affinity-search/
is a desktop search tool.

Affinty is a desktop search tool, which hopes to provide a quick way to get at all the different information on your desktop. It achieves this by having various back-ends, but implemented through one standard interface.
Current Features

  • Front-end to both the Beagl and Tracker desktop search engines.
  • Has actions (configurable through Desktop files), which speed up common tasks.
  • Has built-in, user-configurable, filters which work in the the entry box, so typing pics:london will only bring up pictures.
  • Super-fast application searching through an built-in list of applications.
  • Colours can be customised to your taste.
  • Lives in the system-tray, but can be called by a global key stroke. Default is Ctrl+Alt+a, but you can change it to anything you like!
