FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
St. Clair Software Releases HistoryHound 1.0.1
Search Safari and Internet Explorer History and Bookmarks
(Blacksburg, VA — April 28, 2004) St. Clair Software has updated
HistoryHound, its new utility to help Mac OS X users surf the web.
Version 1.0.1 of HistoryHound now lets you search the contents of
pages in your bookmarks and history in both Safari and Internet
Explorer. If you use either browser, going to a web page that you’ve
bookmarked or visited recently is as easy as giving HistoryHound a
few words that appeared on the page you want. It does the hunting so
you don’t have to!
This release also adds a Danish localization and fixes several
problems that users of version 1.0 have reported. The update is free
for registered users, and is localized for English, French, and
Danish-speaking OS X users.

Default Folder X product page:
Have you ever tried to find something in your browser history or
bookmarks, but couldn’t quite remember when or where you saw it? Or
perhaps you’ve got your bookmarks meticulously organized, but it
takes forever to mouse through the menus to get to something you
want? HistoryHound will chase down the page for you – fast!
Just type in a few words that appear anywhere on the page and
HistoryHound will give you a list of matches, ranked by relevance.
Powered by Mac OS X Panther’s “V-Twin” search technology for fast
searching, HistoryHound lets you do a text search on the entire
content of all web sites you’ve visited recently, plus all the pages
you’ve bookmarked. It also includes a built-in browser based on
WebKit, the same engine that’s inside Safari, so your search results
are rendered quickly and accurately.
HistoryHound provides an intuitive interface that finds what you’re
looking for, then gets out of your way. Among its features,
HistoryHound lets you:
1. Choose your weapon: You can use HistoryHound’s full search
window with relevance, sorting, and result preview, or choose a
minimalist search palette where you enter search terms and get a
quick popup list of results.
2. Be as simple or as complicated as you like: Search for pages
containing any or all of your search terms, or use more sophisticated
boolean or include / exclude searches.
3. Call on HistoryHound with a keystroke: A hot key brings the
HistoryHound search window to the front when you need it. It finds
your page then hides itself in the background.
4. Don’t suffer memory loss: Unlike Safari, HistoryHound will
remember pages for as long as you like, so you can find that recipe
you forgot to bookmark sometime last month.
