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.
Additional information, screen shots and download links are available at:
HistoryHound will operate on any Macintosh running Mac OS X version
10.3 or higher and currently supports Safari, Internet Explorer, and
OmniWeb web browsers, plus URL Manager Pro’s bookmark files. Future
releases will support additional browsers.
HistoryHound is distributed as shareware, requiring a $19.95
registration fee for use beyond its free 30 day trial period.
