XMenu, EasyFind updated
DEVONtechnologies has released two freeware updates, launching XMenu 1.9 and EasyFind 4.5 with new features and bug fixes. XMenu has new menu icons for easier recognition and also adds a snippets menu in a cascading structure that supports the user's inserting plain and rich text snippets, clippings, and Internet location files as single menu choices. From that point large numbers of rich text can be quickly accessed for retrieval and use. Meanwhile, EasyFind 4.5 adds Quick Look support and adds extended Boolean operators found in DEVONtechnologies' lead applications.
EasyFind is an index-free search tool that supports case sensitive/insensitive search, wild cards, phrase-based searching and now Boolean operator searches. It can find invisible files and supports drag-and-drop access. EasyFind is multi-threaded for better performance and utilizes very little memory, according to the company.
XMenu adds one or multiple menus to the OS X Menu Bar, like Applications, Documents and/or the new Snippets menu, allowing for fast access, launching or locating of items. It is reminiscent of the Apple Menu from Mac OS 9.
XMenu 1.9 and EasyFind 4.5 are now available for download, free of charge. They each require Mac OS X 10.4 or higher.
