Default Folder X Updated to Version 4.3.2

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

It’s been a bit of a fight to get this release finished, but Default Folder X 4.3.2 is finally available! It fixes problems that have been reported when running with Snow Leopard (some my fault, some Snow Leopard’s fault).

If you’re a Default Folder X user, download a copy and install it. The update is free and will make everything work more smoothly, especially if you’re dealing with file servers or use column view a lot. Oh, and this version also watches the Recent Items list in your Apple Menu and remembers the folders for documents that OS X adds there. This makes sure that Default Folder X’s list of recent folders is never missing anything.

Full details and download links for the English, French, German and Danish installers are available now on the “What’s New” page for Default Folder X.

HistoryHound 1.9.7 Unleashed!

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

HistoryHound IconThe final version of HistoryHound, our  multi-browser search tool , is available!  It now works with the latest versions of Safari, Opera, and Google Chrome, and will also index URLs contained in .webbookmark, .webhistory, and .webloc files. On top of that, HistoryHound is now faster and consumes less of your CPU, addresses a number of bugs and problems, and includes some helpful little enhancements.

I got this from a HistoryHound user yesterday:
Just wanted to compliment you and your staff for the GREAT update to HistoryHound.  1.9.7 really rocks.
Thanks for creating this great and oh-so-useful piece of software.
With all best wishes,
That about sums it up 🙂  You can see a list of all the changes and / or download a copy from the HistoryHound release page.

HistoryHound 1.9.7b1 Beta

Thursday, October 8th, 2009

I just posted a beta version of HistoryHound that addresses a bunch of issues, not the least of which are support for Safari 4 and Opera 10.

Yes, you can now search your history in Safari 4, but it oddly doesn’t sort the results by relevance and it’s difficult to get to the history display in the first place.  It still takes me longer to find something than it does in HistoryHound.  For those of us that search through our histories frequently or use multiple browsers (I use Safari, Firefox, and NetNewsWire myself) HistoryHound is still what I’d choose (no bias here, of course 😀 ).

At any rate, hop over to the HistoryHound Beta Testing page to get the details and download a copy.
