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 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 EasyFind is especially useful for those tired of slow or impossible indexing, outdated or corrupted indices, or those just looking for features missing in the Finder or Spotlight.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

sooo much better than !*$spotlight!

Thank you thank you thank you. At last I can search my thousands of Mac files just like I used to search my PC and not be overwhelmed by a bunch of irrelevant Spotlight junk. Thank you - did I already say that? I would happily have paid for this so I’m making a donation (if that’s possible).

Great for finding files on all external drives

I was trying to find a file on 3 external Firewire drives attached to my MacBook Pro. This utility found the file I was looking for. Way better than Spotlight. Saved me a lot of time and frustration. This is a great application that will always come in handy for me!
