Think Mac OS X's Spotlight could use some help, especially when searching for text files? Download EasyFind, an alternative to (or supplement of) Spotlight and find files, folders, or contents in any text file without indexing. EasyFind is especially useful for those tired of slow or impossible indexing, outdated or corrupted indices, or those just looking for features missing in the Finder or Spotlight.
- Boolean operators, wildcards, phrases
- Extended Boolean operators, similar to DEVONthink and DEVONagent
- Immediate searches, no indexing required
- Finds invisible files and files inside packages (something Spotlight doesn't do)
- Displays the location of each file in a separate column
- Previews files using Quick Look (Mac OS X 10.5 or later)
- Provides contextual menus and services
- Supports drag-and-drop
- Very responsive, thanks to multithreading
- Uses very little memory

IF I AM WRITING THIS REVIEW THAT MEANS ITS GREAT!!!
I have never written a itunes review but this rescued me from over an hour of trying to find my files that mysteriously seemed to be gone and finder is horrible at finding anything.
Great product!!! GREAT!!! GREAT!!! GREAT!!! Whoever made it needs an award!! Why apple couldnt do this in the first place is beyond me.
I Second That Emotion
I agree with the first reviewer. Easy-to-use, good at filtered searches, finds files Spotlight can't find.
MY FIRST REVIEW…EVER
This is the BEST app.ever.
Definitely 100 times better than Spotlight .
