HistoryHound

2.0.2
18 May 2019

Do a fast text search of all recently visited websites.

Overview

HistoryHound is for you if you ever tried to find something in your browser history or bookmarks, but couldn't quite remember when or where you saw it. Or perhaps you've got your bookmarks meticulously organized, but it takes forever to mouse through the menus to get to something you want? HistoryHound will chase down the page for you - fast!

HistoryHound lets you quickly search for keywords in the entire content of all Web pages and RSS feeds you've visited recently, plus all those that you've bookmarked. It's a "personal Web search." Instead of hunting through endless lists of obscure URLs and page titles, just type in a few words that appear anywhere on the page, and even narrow it down to a specific range of dates if you remember when you saw it. HistoryHound will give you a list of matches, ranked by relevance.

HistoryHound currently supports Safari, Firefox, Google Chrome, OmniWeb, Opera, iCab, Vivaldi, NetNewsWire and URL Manager Pro.

What's new in HistoryHound

Version 2.0.2:
  • Fixed a problem with HistoryHound not seeing changes in history files until long after they occur.
  • Added the ability to search in the error window.
  • HistoryHound is now notarized by Apple.

I really enjoy having History Hound at hand. I end up using it a dozen times a week just to find some page I hit but didn't bookmark. The tool integrates so well with my workflow that I don't even think about it until right when I need it, which is perfect. With the flexible indexing I have History Hound can search archives of NetNewsWire, and even your own webpages, etc (if you're a web developer, this can be nice for finding a snippet you put into a site, etc).

I recently started using it again and within a week I needed to find a quote I had read somewhere online and History Hound found that quote for me within seconds. I have to say I am so glad I am using this again. Love this app.

Very useful in theory – but not if I get a 30-seconds beachball with every search. I hope this gets fixed.

Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Go to HistoryHound > Preferences > Behavior and change the setting for Search Behavior to "Search when you press Return". That'll prevent the issue.

In the future, if you have issues, please contact us at support@stclairsoft.com

HistoryHound has been around for a long time because it works as stated. For most, it isn't an app you'll use daily but anyone who spends a lot of time browsing the internet will probably use it more than the average. Those of us who will use HistoryHound on occasion will find it extremely useful. It is so simple to use, yet very powerful. Basically HistoryHound analyzes every page you visit and keeps and index of everything on all those page so when the time comes and you need to find that "thing a machigy", HistoryHound can locate the web page for you. HistoryHound can render the page in the builtin browser or send it to Safari. Give it a try and someday you'll be thrilled you had it to assist you in finding that web page. It truly is aa very handy application to have for those times when you need to find something you saw while browsing but can't remember where.

How's this project going? Is it dead on the vine or will we be seeing some updates soon? I would really like to give it a shot, but the age is worrisome.

Seems to be nice little app, but sadly no support for more browsers like RockMelt.

Version 1.9.9 now has built-in support for RockMelt. Note that you can add most "unsupported" browsers yourself because they're all based on one of the standard engines (WebKit, Mozilla or Chrome) and HistoryHound lets you specify which one it should look for.

If you're running into problems, please contact us at support@stclairsoft.com. There's a pre-release build that fixes a few minor issues, but we're not aware of any crashing problems.

Does anyone know how to check the CPU usage of this app? I have the feeling I am taking a CPU hit, but I can't figure out if it is because of HistoryHound or because of Time Machine indexing HistoryHound.
