|"Enormously superior to Spotlight; it allows you to search file content for phrases, to use and/or searching and to search by wildcard. You can change the search string in mid-search and it responds instantly, without Spotlight's long delays. Easily reveals any found result in its context. Much more efficient than Spotlight in narrowing down search results to highlight just the ones you want.
Where Spotlight has an advantage is in automatically indexing new files as you create them. With Foxtrot you either schedule the indexing to run at a set time or do it manually. Takes about 20 mins to run through 145,000 indexed files on my 933 iBook, which is not bad. Absolutely first class product."
