How did I not know about this for so long?
It's probably the most used application in my day-to-day work. Thank you so much for it! I installed the version 4.4.3 and am very happy, that you restored the functionality to open the file at proper position by double-clicking the results view. That's great and makes the workflow very comfortable!
Simple and Fast. Although It lacks the Replace feature, deserves the 5 star !
Great little utility
Brilliant piece of software with many applications & features.
