You can now install desktop icons for Google Docs, Google Calendar, and Gmail on your computer for quick access. These icons are now an option of Google Pack.

If you are unfamiliar with Google Pack,it’s a free collection of software from Google and other companies. The software in the Google Pack helps you browse the web faster, remove spyware and viruses, organize your photos, and more. Learn more about each of the programs in the Google Pack.

"We think that you should be able to access your favorite web apps with the same ease and simplicity as desktop applications," says a post on the Google Docs Blog. "Today, we took one small step in that direction."

Google Docs Icons

Initially, this seems like a fairly minor announcement, but increasing the convenience of using services like Gmail, Docs, etc. could go a long way toward pushing even more  users into the cloud. Combine that with Google’s 99.9% uptime guarantee on such services, and they probably start looking more attractive to non-users.

    Gladinet has similar capability to integrate Gmail, Google Calendar and Google Docs/Picasa into Windows Desktop. You can define login credentials outside the browser in safecards.

    There is a tighter Google Docs/Picasa inegration with Gladinet in two ways:
    (1) You can mount Google Docs as a local virtual folder
    (2) You can right click a local word document and edit with Google Docs. After you are done, you can save it back to local folder.

    Picasa works same way as virrtual folder with Gladinet. You can upload pictures from Computer A, then goto Computer B and double click on the picture in the mounted Picasa virtual folder and edit your picture directly from Computer B with PaintShop or any picture editing tools.
