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’s
“SearchKit” 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.
